This is the number of riders who have climbed la Ramaz according to Strava. As of today, the KOM is David Gaudu in 36'35, QOM is Fanny Leleu, in 47'51. 👑

09:30

LA RAMAZ

The Ramaz climb is one of the Haute-Savoie’s prettiest! You can see Mont Blanc from the start of the climb. At the top, the view is even better. The col was made famous by the famous breakaway sprint by Richard Virenque in the 2003 Tour de France (which secured him the yellow jersey and won him the Morzine stage, too!). It remains a classic that every enthusiast should add to their must-do list.

Velominati - Rule #56

When wearing cycling kit and enjoying a pre or post ride coffee, it is only appropriate to drink espresso or macchiato. If the word soy/skim latte is heard to be used by a member wearing cycling apparel, then that person must be ceremonially beaten with Co2 canisters or mini pumps by others within the community.

“Authentic passion for riding”

Aurelien has this authentic passion for riding a bike that shines through in every moment of each SCCC camp. He really cares about making sure everyone is enjoying themselves and getting stronger, so along with his team he makes sure that we are fuelling properly, that the rides are challenging enough without anyone overreaching too much too early, and that off the bike the food is good, the beds are comfy, the massages are specially designed for cyclists pushing really hard, and that we have some great pictures to look at after each ride and good company to keep us motivated. On top of this, he takes the time to explain why SCCC does everything the way that they do it so we have confidence in his approach and the knowledge to improve our own training when we get home.

“A game changer”

Have you ever ride with power? Join one of our cycling camps to give it a try. All our bikes are equipped with a powermeter, and our Ride Captain Aurelien will teach you how to use it during the week! 👇

“Riding with a powermeter is just a game changer. You don't have to be a pro to benefit from having one. I even think that less experienced riders benefit more from riding with power. You can pace better, and avoid putting yourself in the red zone if you rely on numbers more than on your perception of the effort.”

“A personal challenge rather than a race”

Don't overly worry about the FTP test or your position in the peloton. The climbs are a personal challenge rather than a race against your new SCCC team mates, and the atmosphere is always very supportive and fun.

“Nothing to worry about”

I was a bit apprehensive before the camp, especially being female and going on my own – would the others be stronger than me, would I hold them up, could I keep up etc. As it was, I had nothing to worry about – yes, the guys were strong but the support and camaraderie kept everyone going and it didn’t matter that some were stronger than others. We all looked out for each other and we were all challenged in different ways.

🗣💬 A review from Myles

“ I had high expectations due to all the positive reviews but these were easily surpassed. If you love riding a bike and want to improve, this is the camp to do in Mallorca. Aurelien's enthusiasm and professionalism is infectious. You should arrive in reasonable shape as (if you want) you'll be pushed to your limits. Can't recommend it enough, I will definitely be back. ”

Velominati - Rule #56

When wearing cycling kit and enjoying a pre or post ride coffee, it is only appropriate to drink espresso or macchiato. If the word soy/skim latte is heard to be used by a member wearing cycling apparel, then that person must be ceremonially beaten with Co2 canisters or mini pumps by others within the community.

💡 Coaching tip

“For our first long ride of the week, it will be important to pace your effort. There are four longs climbs today. Focus on the data of your powermeter and accept riding slower to reach the summits.”

“Authentic passion for riding”

Aurelien has this authentic passion for riding a bike that shines through in every moment of each SCCC camp. He really cares about making sure everyone is enjoying themselves and getting stronger, so along with his team he makes sure that we are fuelling properly, that the rides are challenging enough without anyone overreaching too much too early, and that off the bike the food is good, the beds are comfy, the massages are specially designed for cyclists pushing really hard, and that we have some great pictures to look at after each ride and good company to keep us motivated. On top of this, he takes the time to explain why SCCC does everything the way that they do it so we have confidence in his approach and the knowledge to improve our own training when we get home.

💡 Coaching tip

“We know it can be tempting to impress your new teammates and go full gas on the first day, but don’t! Travelling is tiring and there is a long week ahead of us. If you want to get the most out of the training camp and enjoy your week here, you have to ease yourself into it.”

“A game changer”

Have you ever ride with power? Join one of our cycling camps to give it a try. All our bikes are equipped with a powermeter, and our Ride Captain Aurelien will teach you how to use it during the week! 👇

“Riding with a powermeter is just a game changer. You don't have to be a pro to benefit from having one. I even think that less experienced riders benefit more from riding with power. You can pace better, and avoid putting yourself in the red zone if you rely on numbers more than on your perception of the effort.”

Welcome message from the Ride Captain

“You all come from different countries, have different levels and maybe even different expectations about this camp. Most of you don't know each other, but you all share the same passion for cycling. We have put all our heart and energy into creating this team, for you, and for all the riders who will follow you. Now it's up to you to bring it to life! You are the Sa Calobra Cycling Club!”

“A personal challenge rather than a race”

Don't overly worry about the FTP test or your position in the peloton. The climbs are a personal challenge rather than a race against your new SCCC team mates, and the atmosphere is always very supportive and fun.

“Nothing to worry about”

I was a bit apprehensive before the camp, especially being female and going on my own – would the others be stronger than me, would I hold them up, could I keep up etc. As it was, I had nothing to worry about – yes, the guys were strong but the support and camaraderie kept everyone going and it didn’t matter that some were stronger than others. We all looked out for each other and we were all challenged in different ways.

“ I had such a fantastic week with SCCC! It was everything I hoped for, and more! Aurelian and the team had everything covered, there was nothing that had not been thought about - everything it promises it delivers on, and more! [...] If you are looking for a training camp where you can ride with like minded people, challenge yourself and improve your cycling knowledge then this is the one for you. I can’t wait to go back! ”
