Buenobike Winter Bike Training Weeks

Our friend Mick at Buenobike has lined up a series of bike training weeks through the winter. Unlike many others, these aren’t simply about mile building – they are carefully planned to improve speed, whilst reducing effort, so they are ideal for cyclists and triathletes preparing for the coming season or wanting to stay in shape during the dark months in northern Europe.


The weeks run from Sunday to Sunday and here’s what they look like:

Winter Training In Lanzarote

We’re just back from a week in London, and we’re full of admiration for the athletes who train there in some appalling conditions – we found even going for a run scary, with low light, leaves all over the paths, and icy rain falling steadily.

Open water  Pool training

Its one of the reasons that Lanzarote is becoming THE destination for winter training. The island can offer:

  • Daytime temperatures of 20 to 25 degrees even in mid winter
  • Very little chance of rain
  • No leaves on roads or pavements!
