At the heart of any good training camp are three fundamentals – brilliant scenic rides, good accommodation and nice food. Very few camps can actually deliver on all three but Nozad and Cycling Holiday Spain not only meet these requirements but greatly surpass them.


The location in which the camp is situated is simply idyllic and pretty much a cyclist’s paradise. It’s unsurprising that so many pro teams pick this area as their winter base – smooth roads, very few cars, awesome climbs and stunning scenery. What more could you want?

Well actually Nozad provides you with more… Not only are the rides tailored to meet your needs but Nozad also accompanies either via the support car (very pro-esque) or by riding with you. It takes away the hassle of planning your own routes, worrying about directions and also allows you to make the most of the hours spent in the saddle. Thanks to Nozad, we managed to do all the climbs we wanted and much more!

The accommodation was also perfect for our group – it felt like a home from home. It’s a great pad to lounge around in post ride and the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. What more could you want?

Well throw in a pool table, playstation, spin bikes, gym and projector screen for movies and you’ll find your time off the bike is never boring. As for the food – it was brilliant. Nutritious, home-cooked and centred around recovery. A bountiful selection for breakfast provides you with all you could need for a good day on the bike and a three course evening meal rounds off the day nicely. What more could you want?



Well, yet again Nozad surpasses expectation by providing mid ride nutrition, post ride recovery shakes and ensures a freshly cooked lunch is on the table within 20 minutes of returning to camp. Nozad also managed to cater for the fussy eater, the vegetarian and the ‘healthy appetites’ of our group.

And when you think it can’t get any better, you find the extra touches that simply make the camp stand out. Post ride massages every evening, saunas and steam rooms and a brilliant host that will do anything to make your stay better.

Cycling Holiday Spain is as close as you will get to a ‘pro-style’ camp and allows you to get the most out of your training. I can’t wait to return!
