We have had two great years of training camps in Powburn. A scout hut in the wilds of Northumberland provided the perfect venue for some serious hilly training and we will be looking to repeat this in 2013 with the possibility of some other venues if demand is big enough. Aimed at youth riders (Under 18)
We’re still very keen to run off road and MTB events in the North East, so if you know of anyone who wants to spend some quality off road time with us then get in touch.
What our Camps look like.
The weeks are aimed at youth riders (under 18) that are either actively racing or looking to race, either off-road or on circuits.
Due to the intensity of the training, riders should be comfortable and capable of cycling for a good day at a regular tempo.
Both weeks will focus on core skills and endurance building.
In addition you will also receive advice and guidance on:
- Bike set-up and maintenance
- Nutritional advice
The sessions will be delivered by British Cycling trained coaches that have extensive experience in developing cycling for sport.
The cost for the week is £150 per person, half board. Lunches will be at cafes en route.

Our first two 3 day camps at Powburn in a big hit with the young riders despite (or because?) we taught them to cook and clean!
