Team Camp, February 20-23, 2020

Facebook Event Page

Join us for a memorable outing in the flat and rolling hills of Central Florida.  The temperatures in February are ideal for base mileage and fun intensity sprinkled here and there to keep things entertaining.

This camp is particularly special because FloridaVelo’s Elite squad will lead the rides with the support of well-known coaches and other team’s captains, and we will surprise you with the presence of celebrities who are joining us just because this group and outing will be super fun!  The small profit from this camp will support FloridaVelo’s Elite squad, and the Florida Cycling Foundation’s Kids and Juniors programs.

You can participate in three options:

• Camper:  $695 all-inclusive – 3 nights housing (shared room, $200 extra for single room), 1 welcome dinner, 3 rides + 1 granfondo, daily sag + technical support, 3 continental breakfasts, 3 lunches during rides, 4 group gatherings.
• Visitor:  $395 all of the above, housing excluded – for your convenience, we have arranged a rate of $135 per night at our host hotel.
• Rider:  $150 riding only – 3 rides + 1 granfondo, daily sag + technical support, 3 lunches during rides.
