Ride

Five or seven days of intense training with a team from MJ’s who will provide coaching, daily ride leaders, an on site mechanic, SAG, and one or two rest stops.

Rolling hills are minutes away. Each morning the ride lead will review the structure of the day and get you rolling. Post ride the mechanic will service and wash your bike for the following day.

Rest

Your home away from home is a 4,000 SQF, six bedroom house, tucked away on 6 acres down a quiet road road in the small town of Dripping Springs, just 30 minutes from downtown Austin.

Amazing homemade meals will be prepared daily by a local chef and one or two nights we’ll venture out to take in the areas delicious local fare.

Recover

When not on your bike, you have the options of enjoying a heated spa, yoga, massage, or head out to enjoy the sights.

Each training camp is limited to 12 riders, plus two ride leads, and the occasional pro who might join the group. This means focused time on and off the bike.

Repeat

Daily, our dedicated mechanic will clean your whip and have it ready for the day's ride.

MJ’s has relationships with world renowned pro-cyclists who often do off season training in our area. When possible a ride with a visiting pro will be on the schedule
