JURA SPORTS’ SWITZERLAND & FRANCE CYCLING TRAINING CAMPS ARE EXCLUSIVE, TAILOR-MADE EXPERIENCES THAT FOCUS ON ENDURANCE, CONDITIONING AND WELL-BEING.
Switzerland is the cyclist’s heaven; from picturesque villages to amazing mountain views, riding in Switzerland is a fantastic challenge which will leave you with beautiful memories. Our weekend cycling tours aim to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere for athletes ranging from all abilities, whether you are competing in sportives or aim to climb your first mountain pass.
Our camp is a great opportunity to take the time to train, recover, and become stronger. We propose strength and conditioning sessions aimed specifically for cyclists, and also nutrition advice in order to enhance your bike performance but more importantly your general health. Our aim is to make our athletes stronger and full of energy, experiencing Switzerland in a unique way.
DAY 1: WARM UP & SCENERY
Meet and greet in the morning after airport pick up, we will have a casual lunch at the hotel. It’s a good opportunity to meet the fellow athletes, and make sure that all your gear is ready, with the help of our support crew.
We will start the camp with a 2.5 hour bike ride to loosen up the legs, on beautiful country roads through the vineyards, with amazing views of the lake and mountains. Upon return to the hotel, we head into the gym studio for a 90-minute strength & conditioning workout with plenty of stretching to build resistance for the upcoming days.
After a well-deserved free time, the camp have dinner at the hotel, and experience a beautiful gourmet menu prepared by one of the top chefs in the region.
DAY 2: QUEEN STAGE
We start the day with a bang by going straight into the gym studio for a strength and conditioning session, and prepare for the main event of the day; the queen stage!
With multiple mountain passes on the course, expect a challenging but rewarding ride. There will be plenty of opportunities to take pictures all along the way, as you will witness amazing sceneries. We will have lunch in a beautiful local restaurant, with an individually prepared menu, letting the good times soak in. After lunch we hop back on our bikes and continue our way through the beautiful Swiss countryside.
Upon return to the hotel, we go into the gym studio again in order to strengthen and stretch our muscles.
The evening will be held in another venue, enjoying fine dining in one of Geneva’s top restaurants.
DAY 3: THE PEAK CHALLENGE
Starting the day with a one-hour conditioning session, aimed specifically for cyclists, we will make sure our muscles and articulations are ready for the final day.
We head into the mountains again for our final ride, and we climb the highest peak in the Jura; La Barillette. We will do a fun “time trial” up the mountain to see who will bring home the king of the mountains jersey.
We will go back to the hotel to enjoy our last lunch together, and share our amazing memories from the weekend.
The accommodation offers the opportunity to train in truly amazing locations. Located near Geneva, the hotel provides exclusive comfort.
Throughout the stay the dining will be in some of the best local restaurants and bistros with the chance to embrace the finest Swiss food & wine.
The focus is on well-being and so recovery is a key aspect. Spa facilities and massage can be arranged to conclude the day’s activities.
CYCLING CAMP PREVIEWS
Switzerland Cycling Camp
France Cycling Camp
I was new to 1 to 1 coaching before signing up with Thierry; having been a gym goer for a number of years, I was looking for something extra to motivate me, push me to the next level and enable me to train more outdoors than in. I wanted a coach who had been there and done it and could speak from firsthand experience and not just about theory. I have limited time to train so wanted to ensure I am getting the most out of my sessions when I do. Thierry listened to my goals, guided me through my options and provided me with a comprehensive and tailored plan to achieve my fitness objectives and event goals. Thierry makes things clear, straight forward, motivating and his follow up had been first class. I look forward to seeing what I can achieve with his guidance!
