Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving. ~ Albert Einstein letter to his son Eduard, 1930.
For most cyclists being presented a lengthy description of what Costa Blanca has to offer is probably a waste of time. Suffice to say Costa Blanca has long been recognized as being among the absolutely best cycling areas in Europe. The warm and dry climate combined with a very varied terrain provide for ideal training conditions. One can pick between multitudes of routes; practically tailor-make a route according to whatever desires and needs one must have. Along the coast the routes are relatively flat whereas inland the routes are quite hilly. In particular the mountain routes are quite demanding.
With its central location Camp El Planet is ideal for both road – and mountain cycling. From the camp one can either head for the mountains or pick a route from a wide network of roads.
Camp El Planet caters primarily to cycling teams and groups of cyclists. We believe that groups and teams prefer to have the group and team members gathered in one place and not scattered across a large hotel or apartment complex. Camp El Planet can offer groups room and board in a quiet and secluded location; but still within short distance to coast, mountains, sporting grounds, airports and nearby towns like Altea, Alfaz and Albir. A large group will dominate the premises and provide cohesiveness, closeness and a strong feeling of community. Between the training sessions the group would be together during meals, around the pool area, in the bodega or by the pool table or the dart board. This will facilitate informal interaction in a laid-back and friendly environment which again reinforces the cohesiveness of the team. A large group may also request exclusive access to the cafeteria and the kitchen, and prepare and administer their own team – or group meals.
We also believe the personal attention, passion and enthusiasm provided by the owners will contribute positively. As we live in an apartment on the premises we will be close by all the time, and any need that may arise will be attended to right away.
