Locals and Expats Training Camps

Cycling Holidays and Camps in Southern Spain

Locals and Expats Training Camps

Costa Cycling Experience has now been trading for some time and has been very successful in attracting cyclists from the U.K. and Northern Europe. Our training facilities, guiding and hire bikes from Marbella Cycle Centre have a reputation for quality, and we enjoy hosting our Cycling Holiday and Training Camp clients in this beautiful part of Andalucia, Spain.

Most recently we have decided to base all our Winter Training Camps at Gran Hotel Benahavis following very positive client feedback from our Winter 2014 and Spring 2015 camps. In addition to welcoming groups from the UK with our Club Discounts, though, we also wish to try and integrate more into the local community. The village of Benahavis has been especially welcoming to us and our clients and we want to promote the sport of cycling there as much as we can.

With this in mind we would welcome any local person or expat to attend our training camps in 2015. We feel this is a superb way of making friends in the area, building valuable trust, and allowing our clients to benefit from local knowledge and expertise.

Community as a Core

Costa Cycling Experience is now supported and endorsed by Benahavis Town Hall. One of the aims of this collaboration is to bring cyclists from the U.K. to train in and around Benahavis, however we also extend an invitation to locals and expats from the community to take part in our cycling training camps.

We believe having local and expat cyclists on our camps and tours will bring a wealth of knowledge to be shared with our guest cyclists. Whilst we know the area well, there are numerous secret coffee stops and little hidden gems of tapas bars dotted around that we love being shown by our local friends!

Our Locals and Expats Training Camps Package

Locals and expats will be able to cycle each day with our very own pro rider Rab Wardell and enjoy the company of some of our guests. In the last year we have seen Helen Wyman (multiple European and British CX Champion), Jo Watts (Commonwealth Games competitor) and other stars of the MTB and Road Cycling worlds.

Locals and expats are warmly invited to take part in any and all social events with us and our guests, such as an evening meal or perhaps even a refreshment. Essentially they receive all the benefits of our Training Camp, but get to sleep in their own bed each night!

All of our Training camps will be delivered by our professional cyclist and coach, Rab Wardell. A short biography on him can be found on our Training Camp homepage here

Costa Cycling Experience

Costa Cycling Experience was formed by cyclists, through their own experiences of enjoying cycling in Spain in all year round cycling climate and conditions, the main aim being to share these experiences with other cyclists.

With miles of smooth tarmac roads, friendly and limited traffic and great trails, we make cyclists of all ages, ability and chosen discipline welcome, from our bases in Marbella and Benahavis.

Select one of our Training Camps, our Vuelta Week, or enjoy a Bespoke Cycling Holiday ranging from a short break, a week or two and even longer stays of a month or more.
