Penticton Training Camp 2016

Penticton Training Camp 2016


Planning is underway for training camp 2016.

Proposed Dates: Saturday March 26th until Saturday April 2nd

Based on our current reservations in OK Falls, there are spots available for 8-10 people, pending sleeping arrangements.

We have booked 2 two bedroom condos.  Each of the condos has a Queen Bed, a Double bed and a pull out couch.


Current planning:

Arrive Friday night or Saturday morning in Kelowna

Drive down to Kelowna on Saturday around noon. Grocery shop on the way for the week’s planned menu.

Group Transportation will be arranged via a 15 passenger van or two mini vans.

Cycling Manitoba has indicated they will have room to transport bikes in their trailer both too and from Penticton. This means giving up the bikes a little earlier in the week and getting them back a little later the week we return, but saves on packing and airline costs.  There is a nominal fee for transport with Cycling MB.


Training:

We plan to bike ride up to 7 days. Swim up to 5 days. Run up to 5 days.

Bike: Daily routes will be planned for the group. Both long distance and short options, uphill and flat options.

Swim: Swims will take place most week days at the beautiful new Penticton Pool.

Runs: Out the front door of the condo there is immediate access to the KVR railway. The KVR offers endless miles of soft running surfaces along Skaha Lake or up into the hills of the OK Valley
Anticipated cost is about $500/person (not including transportation to Kelowna, bike transport, personal items or food)


To reserve a spot contact Patrick by December 18th, 2015. (50% deposit will be required at this time also, balance will be due by March 1st).
