Charles has just retruned from a four-day break in Girona where all of the pro cyclists go train. A group of five high-level cyclists clocked up about 300 miles in the mountains of Spain and some lovely quiet roads in order to get some base fitness for the season ahead.
It was a useful experience as by using the Strava app we are able to get a good measure of how we compared to a lot of the Por Cyclists who and train in Girona. In fact, we even shared an apartment block with a household name from the pro peloton.
Despite too much work and not enough training, Charles managed to out in a good showing on the bike and put in a very string time up the local HC climb mixing in nicely with the pro times.
