Womens' Camp 2014
Quote | Reply
Yes it's early to think about, but we have multiple schedules to coordinate. Right now we are looking at April 2-6. That is open on Monty's calendar. We could have 80F, we could have a dusting of snow. Or both.

And for anyone wanting to visit NashVegas in the summer, I have a very large party house. I know Kristi will be visiting me to ride long since she and her demented husband talked me into signing up for IMChatt. And I'm sure I can drag AWARE out too.

April 2-6 works for me. I'll be looking for lots of hills and miles with IMC on July 27.

And keep us posted on the NashVegas weekend. IMC is a bit earlier than IMChatt but if timing works out, I could be. SWA has great flight prices from MDW to BNA.

Since my work is transferring me to laguna Niguel, CA, it should be easy for me to make almost any weekend.

If you organize NashVegas, I will be there too!

Strong maybe. My work schedule is hard to predict this far in advanced. Stupid product releases can get in the way.

OHOHOHOH!!! SOOOOOO Exciting. I needed this type of exciting good stuff on a REALLY droopy Monday morning. I may not make the April trip but I will DEFINITELY be down for anything here in Nashville. I can probably even offer up some swimming with the Master's group I coach & organize something out at the lake if the timing is right.

I may not have a large party house, but I will most likely have a townhome with an extra bed or two & plenty of nourishing/hydrating opportunities. I can also make a helluva cocktail when requested.

And I'll need continual dragging out on my bike as well, since I got hooked into IMChatt as well.

Yea! We need to chat over beers after your big swim.

On my calendar. I will need the womens to climb some dam hills and to whine to Dan about my short-girl problems with the fit bike and the saddle tour. This year I promise to bring some sort of consumables, although I hate to rival Monty's classic chocolate cake.

I'm in, at least for the weekend.

This is officially going on the calendar - April 2-6, 2014.

Cost will be $70/night, all inclusive. Gourmet cooking, all the bike riding and running you want, even stories from the old days (and videos too). And of course, coffee, wine, beer and Monty's wicked margaritas on Saturday night.

All right womens, it is on!! Perhaps a couple of you with the silver tongues could post up a link to your blogs that detailed some of the past camps, and of course pics or it did not happen. That way any new womens seeing this for the first time could see what they might expect at this hideaway in the mountains, with two old crusty men sleeping just a room away. And keep in mind for those of you that are prepping for a big A race to happen within a month or two, you can come out early like cathy and get in a couple extra days of red blood cell multiplying training.

And don't forget that we do have some loaner bikes for those flying in, but limited in sizes and all road bikes. So if you want to save a few bucks give cathy a holler and let her know about what sizes you can ride, they are brand new carbon bikes with that new bike smell.

I'll be there! Likely with a plus one as my training buddy would like to make the trip this year.

Is this a Womens Only camp? Understand if it is, just asking.

Hi there
Used to post occasionally, a few years ago... I just checked in again, randomly, and saw the info about this great-sounding camp! Seriously thinking about it. I'm training for my first Ironman (Lake Placid) so it could be helpful. Of course fun too. :-)
A few questions: is the closest airport LAX? I'd rather not rent a car by myself - any chance of sharing a ride or rental from airport or city of LA? (May come early or stay after in LA to visit friends.)
Is there any swimming?
Are there all people of all paces there? :-) I would want to do some good longish rides and would like company for them. I'm not super speedy.
Lastly, if I do come, I would loooove one of the loaner bikes. I'm 5'7" and think I could do a 51 or maybe 52 size. (My bike is a Giant TCR and it's a small so I'm not 100% sure of size by numbers.)
Thanks and hope that's not too many questions!

Hey Mindy-

Usually as we get closer to camp, folks will start coordinating ride shares and whatnot. As of now, my plans are to be in LA for a couple of days prior to the camp and then head out there on Wednesday, leaving Sunday sometime depending on my return flight time. If those times work out for you, I would be happy to have you carpool with me and my friend, Michele. The two of us are training for IMC so there will be plenty of long rides for us. And yes, there are usually people of all speeds and levels of training. It all just seems to work out. Those that ride long work among themselves to periodically meet up along the way and no one has been left behind (to my knowledge). There is also a beautiful pool in Palmdale and we usually head there a couple of times during camp (depending on weather).

In terms of airports - LAX is not the closest airport. Burbank is the closest, I think. CLM will have to confirm. Ontario is also an option. I have always flown into LAX as that is where I can get the best prices on flights and rental cars.

Hope to see you in CA!

really wanted to make it work, but I think my best option is to head to Hawaii for my own training camp so I can race the crazy 263 mile bike race that weekend.

Thanks. Looks awesome and i hope to make it! I'd probably have a similar timeframe as you (re arrival/departure) so would love to share rides. Also, ha, just realized, don't know how "longish" my rides would be - as it will be so early in spring, but we'll see! :-)

Cathy, I'm mentioned this to my wife before a few times. She's currently injured and signed up for Tremblant so 2014 camp is not likely, but I hope she does it one of these years.

She's maybe only posted three times on ST in the last 10 yrs. I can see her showing up for the camp and introducing herself to you gals as "cerveloguy's wife". LOL!!

Tell her she is more than welcome! And it wouldn't be the first time someone who has never (or very rarely) posted, came to camp. We love that!
