Feb 15th - Feb 21st: Training Ramblings.....dreaming of Camp

The past week with winter still showing no signs of letting up, I've been dreaming of riding in just shorts and short sleeves.  Give it a few months and we will all be moaning how hot and humid it is but in the meantime I've been scouring google maps to get some ideas for a US based training camp for 2015.

So what would we need for a decent camp location?

  • It would need to be warm, as in above 60's during the day.
  • There would be climbing and plentiful options for routes.
  • Direct flights from BWI.
  • Easy access to rental houses.
  • Not expensive.
  • Extra curricular activities available.

From research that essentially leaves us with southern California, Arizona, Nevada and central Florida (not major hills but rollers).  Having been to San Diego in 2011 that would be a good option. I have always heard great things about the Dirty-T, but in February it's not overly warm. How about Las Vegas in February? Not really sure about the riding routes for a week. Clermont, FL has some very underrated riding and is home to the National Triathlon Center.

Got any recommendations? Let me know.

What I listened to this week:

Total: 119.82 Miles / 8 hours 35 minutes

Swim: 2,400 yards / ~1.36 miles / 0 hours 47 minutes
Bike: 107 miles / 6 hours 05 minutes
Run: 11.56 miles / 1 hour 22 minutes
