The Royal Dean Forest Cycling Club. Cambrils, Costa Daurada

Back in January 17, invited ten UK cycling clubs to take part in a familiarisation trip to the resort of Cambrils, Costa Daurada. The RDFCC was offered a place and we were delighted to take Steve Beal with us on this heavily subsidised trip.

The trip was designed to introduce UK cycling clubs to the area and also to discover the fantastic facilities that the Cambrils Sport Village offered, who are one of our key partners and who contributed so much to this event.

We provided flights, accommodation, transfers, meals, guided rides and bikes were also included. Although we ran into a spot of bad weather, the clubs and Steve enjoyed the trip very much.  The Cambrils Sport Village is unique compared to your typical bike friendly hotel in that it is a large resort with separate apartments for cyclists and also offers facilities, including secure bike workshops and storage a wellness centre, Spa, Gym and even an on-site doctor and nutritionist!

The area is of outstanding natural beauty and offers 2,000Km of virtually traffic free secondary roads which feature an abundance of mountain passes. In fact in 2016/17 a total of 20+ Pro cycling teams came to Cambrils Village and completed their winter training there, including Alpecin, Team Wiggins and many more….

In addition to the cycling, Cambrils and the surrounding area offers so much more including, amazing food, culture, history and family attractions also. That is why we have made the area one of our major cycling destinations which can support, Training Camps, Events and Sportives, MTB and Family holidays so that Dad can get away for a few days extra cycling, we call this particular trip, our Beach & Bike, which is great for families….
