7 days of riding. One House.
Complete immersion. This isn’t just a winter getaway. This is NEW YEAR’S EVE ON A BIKE!
Think, live, breathe, and EVOQ the best version of yourself to ring in 2020.
When: December 27, 2019 - January 4, 2020
Where: PUerto varas, Chile
What to Expect
This camp is for Category 4 cyclists and up. We will be riding BASE MILES as a group for the most part. If there are crazy Strava KOMs that people are dying to go after, of course, we can regroup.
LODGING: We will be staying at The Guest House! The bed and breakfast in Puerto Varas is located near downtown and offers convenient access to all surrounding area attractions.
The Guest House is a large mansion also known as the Casa Kortmann, built in 1926 as a city home. This national monument has been renovated with all of the modern comfort possible, attempting to return it to its original state. With all of the comfort of a hotel, The Guest House offers a home away from home in the city of Puerto Varas.
There will be a huge benefit in staying in the house with two of the country’s best cyclists: pick their brains on everything from preride rituals to breakfast concoctions. What does it take to race the pros, and win Master’s National Championships? We’re going to share all of the secret with you.
FLIGHTS: You will fly into Puerto Montt (PMC) and we will ride for half of a day on the first day. Flights will be around $1,500 USD, but many will get them for around $1,200 USD.
