Join Ben Thomas Coaching on for a week of big winter miles under sunny skies. You can train like a Pro with the ultimate guidance on training, race preparation, equipment selection, nutrition and recovery. Learn the secrets of 3 x British Champion. Ben Thomas Coaching will be offering an open house training camp for clients and friends in March 2020 in Gran Canaria. Whilst the seaside resorts are full of tourists the beautiful winding mountain roads are almost deserted, this Canary Island has become a favourite training location for your host and 3 x National Cycling Champion.
I’ve visited Gran Canaria 4 times and have been joined on the roads by many pro’s. Alban Lakata, ex World Marathon Champion visits the island each year. Many Tour de France pro team usee the island as their winter training base. The fantastic thing about this island is the variety of route options, spend a week in Gran Canaria and ride a different route into the mountains nearly every day. There’s also plenty of options for beer and ice cream!
The training camp will kick start your 2020 season. It’s the perfect opportunity to log a big week of early season miles or start to test the engine. This is a road based training camp. If you wish to go mountain biking I would suggest hiring the services of a guide for a day or 2, then riding with us the rest of the week on the road.

Support from coach, and 3 x National Champion.
