2018 ALABAMA WHEELMEN TRAINING CAMP

The Alabama Wheelmen will be holding a structured training camp led by Stuart Lamp on Jan 12th through the 15th of 2018.  This camp will be based at Shocco Springs Retreat and will put us close to Cheaha Mountain which is home to the tallest point in the State of Alabama.  This camp will be offered to men and women that raced with us in 2017 or plan to race with us in 2018.  The camp will include Lodging (bring your own linens and towels) 3 breakfast meals and one dinner meal plus the rides each day.  The tentative schedule is as follows.

Friday – Everyone arrive on their own at some point that PM at Shocco.  For those interested a group of us will be meeting at the Cheif Ladega Trail head for a easy ride earlier on Friday Jan 12th.  Wheels roll at 10:00 AM(link below).  Then that afternoon arrive at Shocco, hang out and order food that afternoon and unpack.  Possibly a small formal deal that night(bike tips/ check gear etc.

Saturday – Breakfast at Shocco – Train at Stuarts discretion and return that afternoon, ride will be 5000 + feet of elevation (link below).  Return and clean up then head out for dinner.

Sunday – Breakfast at Shocco – Train at Stuarts discretion and return that afternoon, ride will be approaching 9000+ feet of elevation (link below).  This will be the hardest day of riding so dinner will be provided at Shocco Springs.

Monday – Breakfast at Shocco – pack up and head out that AM.  Possibly go out and tour the Piedmont Road Race that is part of the Sunny King race in April on the way home.

We have room for 16 men and 16 ladies which will all under one roof, but sleeping in different wings of the building.  There is a central meeting area between the two sleeping areas that will be used to hang out and congregate.  The price will be $50 per rider and the deadline to signup will be December 16th 2017.  We look forward to this great experience to suffer together as a team.

      Great to hear. We will probablly do another order around Feb/March of 18 as we get ramped up for the 2018 racing season. We have multiple training rides planned for the winter. Best bet is to keep a watch on our facebook page for updates. The link for the pages can be found here at the top of the page
