Vélo Mag White Mountains Training Camp

Breathtaking setting and physical exertion: that sums up this tour through New Hampshire to Woodsville and North Conway, with a view of Mount Washington. The abundant nature and magnificent forests provide a feast for the eyes. And 3 days of cycling between 100 and 135 km, at elevations of about 1200 to 1600 m, make for quite a workout. And a well-paved route enhances the experience. A beautiful challenge!

Daily schedule
  • Three biking excursions of 100 to 125 km with the coaches, including Yannick Cojan;
  • Short afternoon technical and practical workshops: assessment of your cycling technique; tips on how to prepare for an outing; positioning yourself on your bicycle; uphill and downhill techniques; how to replenish your energy on the road; basic and advanced techniques for cycling as part of a pack.
