Borrego Springs Cycling Camp
#BorregoCamp went #VirtualBorrego for 2021. I hope to host camp again but can't make any promises at this point. Stay up to date by joining the email list below and checking for updates.
What to expect at #BorregoCamp 2022:
Tentative dates, pending health & travel recommendations: Jan 23 - 28. 2022.
Ride, eat, recover, smile, laugh, sing. Dedicate a week to your cycling self! Climb the famed Palomar Mountain, soak in the California sun in the Anza-Borrego Desert, experience the thrill of descending the “glass elevator” Montezuma Road to the quaint town of Borrego Springs. Enjoy all of this knowing you have coaches to help you learn and grow, you’re never far from the next fully stocked aid station and pro mechanic, and when you get done with your ride, there will be a post-ride meal, recovery lounge, and optional nap awaiting you. Not to mention… an evening filled with laughs, dinner, and the night’s presentation. We may not be pro riders, but you sure will feel like one.
Daily distance: 60 - 100 miles
Daily elevation gain: 5,000 – 10,000 feet
Daily ride time: 4 – 8 hours
Wednesday is our all-camp recovery day where we shorten ride time to about 2 hours and enjoy the mountains by viewing them from afar. We’ll focus on active recovery on the bike and in the Backmate Recovery Lounge.
Where: Borrego Springs, CA at the Borrego Springs Resort, 1112 Tilting T Drive.
