The Bright Boot Camp is structured around either the serious recreational rider or club racing rider who is looking for a challenging four days of riding. Not intended to be an easy four days the Camp is focused on helping improve your fitness and general wellbeing as a cyclist. We provide informative lectures on improving cycling performance. Riders that have attended the camp regularly go up a racing grade soon after it.
Is there a difference between the Nov and Feb/March camps?
The Melbourne Cup weekend Camp does have a slight focus towards final preparation for the Tour of Bright race which is run in the area four weekends later. However, we ensure that this doesnt deviate from the serious recreational riders enjoyment of the camp. It’s also a cooler time of the year than the Feb/March camp. The Feb/March camp is still as tough and usually the weather is a little hotter.
Who attends the camp?
Riders that attend the camp are keen races or serious recreational cyclists that may have ridden rides like "Around the bay in a day", "The Alpine Classic" or the "Great Victorian bike ride" and are looking for the next big event. This is not to say that people that havent ridden these events cant come to the camp. We get a good cross section of abilities and cater for them accordingly. Riders or groups of riders can also attend the camp and provide their own accommodation if they choose. We have people from all-around the world attend the camp.
As mentioned, many riders use our camp as training for their mid year European cycling trips, the Tour of Bright, Bicycle Victorias Team Degani 3 Peaks Challenge or the Audax Alpine Classic.
How hard is it? This is four big days of riding through some of the largest accessible climbs to cyclists in Australia. You do need to have a good cycling base before coming to this camp. For some, the weekend is filled with just four things; riding, attending the seminars, eating and sleeping. We do have shorter versions of the rides for those that want to take it a little easier or dont meet the fitness requirements to climb to the top of Hotham and Falls Creek.

Do you have on road support? Yes, we provide comprehensive on road assistance to all riders with support vehicles and support riders that perform "domestique" duties and provide a one-on-one coaching.
