INVERLOCH TRAINING CAMPS
These camps are held during April each year and are an eye-opening weekend of road riding action. You will learn to focus on the things that matter as you take on the challenge of the extraordinarily scenic and adventurous terrain of the Strzelecki Ranges. The weekend is specifically designed for advanced beginners thru' to intermediate cyclists (C-D Grade - not elite) and is also suitable for recreational cyclists who are looking to improve their bike skills and handling.
A 5 star training camp staying at the RACV Inverloch Resort, exclusively for SKCC members and limited to 40 people. The camps are run by former Olympian Rob Crowe from Ridewiser Consultancy along with volunteers from the SKCC committee and other experienced SKCC members. This is also a great way for new riders and members to meet other SKCC members who share your passion for cycling!
