FAQs 

 
Which camp is right for me? 
We have designed the camps to allow some periodisation, such as building big aerobic base miles, followed up with a specific training camp and to end it with a Pro experience...this mimics very closely the demands of bringing your fitness into peak performance. 
The camps are not based on ability, because most of the specific sessions will be about your own ability, everyone rides at different abilities so the camps are designed to accommodate this and will allow set pieces for you to perform the session at your own pace, then regroup and ride together. The camps are designed more around what you as an individual want to experience...think the of the 3 camps as a progressive sliding rule, Endurance being about climbing and spending lots of hours riding, Training Specific will be catered for events such as Road racers, Crits, Time Triallist, Sportive riders and Tri-Athletes, so this is a step up in intensity more than endurance. The Pro Experience is a few levels up once again offering all of the above but with the added advantage of Sleeping at altitude for the best marginal gains! 
 
How fit do I need to be? 
If you can manage 2 hour rides on your own, then you will be fine. We aim to stop every 2 hours for refreshment, this will allow you to restore your glycogen levels an tackle another 2 hours. 
There is not much flat in Tenerife, it's either usually up or down, there is routes we have chosen to be more undulating to allow a constant moving pace. 
 
Can I get some personal training advise before I go to a camp? 
Of course please feel free to contact Brivelo for a personal physiology test, we can test you for your personal training zones in Heart Rate and Power which will be useful for when you are on the camps, as we will be asking you to ride at certain zones!
