    Default Spring Training Camp 2013: April 21 to April 27, 2013

    Queen, myself and Tom are very proud to announce that Spring Training for 2013 will be in Virginia at our traditional location in Nellysford.

    After many strong conversations , and a few coffees, we've agreed that for 2013 our theme is "Yes Virginia there will be hills".

    If you have attended in the past and intend to be there send me a note via my website or regular mail: Bicycle-Coach.com Please indicate if you plan to arrive with a roomate and or have a preference for sleeping location.

    I've been planning on some new dinners and a few surprises on the road. There is a new "long route" and we will have a chase vehicle (during the long day) to carry extra water because some of those roads are so freakin' remote!!!!

    ALSO, we are giving SERIOUS consideration to a dirt ride day. This is a long day and it is pretty challenging. There will be an alternate paved road ride if you opt out. Start planning now since we will not let you ride this route without 28mm tyres for all but the most experienced riders who will be allowed to ride 25s.

    That's all I have for now. Final pricing and other details to follow soon. I'm taking reservations and deposits immediately. Bed space is limited, you know the deal.

    Peace, Josh Queen and T.K.

    Nellysford training camp is always a good thing at the right time. In '13, it will be a better thing at a time that I will REALLY need it. Join Josh, Doreen and me to kick off your next season right.

    I plan on adding a descending lesson during the week at some point for those interested. I will be using either Crabtree or Vesuvius as our practice location and there will be a discussion of techniques and tricks the day before. No more excuses to get dropped downhill. You hear that Josh?

    Think it was the drop off the backside (Vesuvius?) that was one of the more "interesting" descents. No sight lines and lots of twists. Fun but not one I fly down, you vanish in no time on it. Having to climb back up to ride down it again?

    If you've ever thought about making the trek for this spring camp, do it this time. You won't regret the week.

    Done.

    Since we are raising the bar this yr. I'm also stepping up and will be available to set your large picture training prep.

    Tom is picking on me because I can't quite hold his wheel downhill when it gets's twisty but I'm getting better. T.K. is the best, this is going to be a really good clinic.

    I am in.
    After following T.K. down from Vesuvias two years ago, I am going to invest in either new brake blocks or a blindfold for next time.

    Sweet :) Send me email. I'll add you to the list of folks who are committing early.

    I'll have a refreshed website up in a few more weeks. It's not time to start cooking for camp yet!!!

    Yes sir. Infact, that will be the preferred method. PP is making everyone grumpy. Don't forget to send me email so that I've got a nose count for early adopters.

    Great road that rt56 is! I've been up and down the Vesuvius side literally thousands of times (twice a day to/from school growing up). I could probably drive that blindfolded...

    This still kinda blows me away. That climb ain't exactly inconsequential.

    Yup, lived in Montebello went to school in Staunton. Parents drove that road 4-6 times a day...there's a reason why Autozone was giving my folks 2-3 pair of free brake pads every year!

    Crazy thing is I don't know the Nellysford side of the mountain at all - been down there only a handfull of times.

    Musgrave you are one of a kind. That's a compliment.

    FOLKS!!! The website has been refreshed and I'm taking deposits NOW. Past patrons get first crack at this.
    Plan on sending me a check or money order. The heck with giving our $$ to PayPal.
    This year we've got some really advanced surprises in store. Come with legs and a steady hand. That is all I've got for you right now.
    Peace, Josh and Tom
