In this training camp / tour, your base is Makarska – a small city on the Adriatic coastline of Croatia, about 60 km (37 mi) southeast of Split and 140 km (87 mi) northwest of Dubrovnik.  While focus is on training, we will still experience the magic of Southern Dalmatia and its gastronomical, historical and natural attractions.

Ride in a group of similar-minded people and share positive experiences together – enjoy in positive competition and motivation. This is a group guided trip, so help and advice comes from experienced guides some of whom are former cycling professionals.

You will practice various technical elements related to group driving as well as important cycling training elements. There is a  support during each training session, accompanied with a vehicle carrying extra food and drink.
Experience the life of a cycling professional, but without its typical worries, because the guides will take care of everything you need.
