French Caribbean Training Camp Vacation

Cycling Camp Vacations in the Caribbean

Join us for an exciting cycling adventure to the French Caribbean Island of Guadeloupe!  The island's warm temperatures in January and February make it a perfect winter training destination for cyclists and triathletes. Guadeloupe is one of the most beautiful islands in the world, and it features a network of very well-maintained roads and incredible terrain diversity.  

Caribbean Cycling Paradise - Guadeloupe

Guadeloupe’s two main islands look like the wings of a butterfly and are connected by a bridge over the Riviere Salee. The eastern side, Grande Terre, offers gently rolling terrain, sensational white sand beaches, resorts, and Guadeloupe’s largest city, Pointe-a-Pitre Grande-Terre. The western island, Basse-Terre, has a dramatic rain forest, towering waterfalls, and magnificent beaches, and it is home to the wonderful Guadeloupe National Park, which is crowned by the spectacular La Soufrière volcano.
It's an easy flight to the islands, only 4-5 hours from Baltimore to Pointe-a-Pitre. Inexpensive flights are available!

Cycling is Guadeloupe's #1 sport!
The island is home to an annual UCI race!

This cycling paradise is home to the Tour de la Guadeloupe, an annual nine-day international stage race (and part of the UCI American Tour) held each year in August. It is by far the most exciting event on the island, and the entire population joins in! Now in its sixty-fourth year, the event is also the oldest sporting tradition on the island.
