The range of camps on offer include:

Nice and Pamplona, where a number of Team Sky riders live and train;
Majorca, used by Team Sky during their pre-season training camp; and
Alpe d’Huez and other race locations, giving the opportunity to combine riding stages of the races
with watching the Team race in person.

Our aim is to do this for all ages and abilities – from kids on their first balance bike to keen amateurs looking to experience riding in new European destinations.

We ran a very successful pilot of the Ride Camps in Nice in the autumn. For many riders it was their first overseas training camp, others were looking to get some good miles in their legs heading into the winter. The trips cater for a range of abilities, and allow the amateur cyclist to connect to the team through insights from our partners and staff.

Sam Seward, Managing Director of Gullivers Sports Travel comments: “Gullivers is proud to be partnering with Team Sky to offer riders the ultimate cycling experience.

About Team Sky

Team Sky is a British professional cycling team competing in the UCI World Tour.

The team’s initial aim was ‘to win the Tour de France within five years, to do it clean and with a British rider’. Team Sky achieved this within three years with Sir Bradley Wiggins becoming the first ever British rider to win the Tour de France in 2012 and Chris Froome taking a second Tour de France win for the team a year later.

Some of Team Sky highlights of the last five years:

Team Sky has had 168 wins in five years (including 19 Grand Tour stage wins)
Team Sky has won the Tour de France twice with two different British riders
Team Sky has had podium finishes at all three Grand Tours
In association with Sky and British Cycling, Team Sky has helped inspire over 1.5 million more
people in the UK to get on their bikes and ride regularly

FAQs

What is the partnership between Team Sky and Gullivers Cycling?

Gullivers Cycling and Team Sky have teamed up to offer the programme of Team Sky Ride Camps. Gullivers Cycling – a division of Gullivers Sports Travel – will operate these Ride Camps, collaborating with Team Sky who will provide Team Sky content and insights.

Who are the Ride Camps aimed at?

The Ride Camps are designed for a broad range of riding abilities and experience level, to make them accessible to everyday cyclists. Some experience on a road bike and a good level of fitness is required, but the content of the camps and routes selected are not designed for elite riders.

See our ability levels for full descriptions of the recommended riding experience and fitness levels for participation in the camps: https://gulliverscycling.com/ability-levels

Is this the same as Team Sky’s Training Camp in January?

No, this is not the Team’s annual training camp held in Mallorca. This is a version for members of the public to experience something similar.

Will Team Sky riders be at the camp?

Because of the demands on the riders and members of the performance staff from the Team during the race schedule, we cannot be sure of their availability. Where the race schedule and staff movements allow, there could be appearances at some of the Ride Camps, but we are not able to guarantee it.

What is there from Team Sky on the Ride Camp?

Each Ride Camp will be attended by a member of staff from Team Sky, and will include an appearance from a prominent member of the team for first-hand accounts from inside the team. Team Sky’s partners will also be in attendance, offering insights into the way they work with and contribute to the performance of the team and its riders. This could be presentations, demonstrations and equipment available from partners.

Beyond this, guests will be have access to specialist meals, support cars, ride nutrition, ride briefings, ready tables, training kit, bidons, and the option to hire a Team Sky Pinarello Dogma F8 – all to feel like a pro on camp.

Will there be a press trip to any of the Ride Camps this year?

We plan to invite press to experience a Ride Camp in the future, but not immediately, as we focus on our attention on our guests on the first camps. You can contact us via email to express a wish to attend when a press trip is arranged, and we will be in touch with more details at a later stage.

What was the Pilot Ride Camp in Nice, and how did it go?

We ran a very successful pilot version of what has now become the Team Sky Ride Camp concept in Nice during November 2014, to trial the experience for guests. It was offered to subscribers of Team Sky’s database with forty places available, and attended by a number of Team Sky partners and staff.

What is Team Sky’s objective for running these camps?

Team Sky is committed to growing participation in cycling and giving fans the chance to get closer to the team. These Ride Camps are an initiative to help achieve this.

3 Tips To Achieve the Cheapest Way To Transport A Car In 2015


Tampa, FL (PRWEB) March 18, 2015

Auto Transport Quote Services wants to let all customers know the cheapest way to transport their car in 2015. The reasoning to tell this “secret information” to its customers is because the customers are the number one priority. If a customer is treated right, given the right companies to choose from, given the proper quote and service is outstanding then that customer will remember that experience.

There are a few misconceptions about transporting a car that needs to be cleared up first. The first misconception is that mileage determines the price. Mileage is just one of many factors that determines a price. The second misconception is that the company you see online is the company that is actually transporting the vehicle. This is not the case. The companies found online are auto transport lead generation websites or auto transport brokers. None of these companies own their own haulers.

The Cheapest Way To Transport A Car In 2015

Now onto the good stuff! The easiest way to get a cheap price and a great hauler is to follow these rules, which will be explained later on in the article.


Research a company before submitting information into a website so you know what type of company it is upfront.
Never sign a contract or give debit/credit card information until you know exactly who is transporting the vehicle and when it is scheduled to be picked up.
The best pricing occurs when a customer is within a 30 mile radius of a major metropolitan area.

#1: Research

Researching a company before submitting information into the website will help distinguish which type of company they are; lead generation website or broker company. A lead generation website will send your information to multiple broker companies whereas a broker will only quote you themselves. Depending on the customer, some may want multiple quotes and other may only want one single quote. Knowing the type of company first will help fight frustration for a customer and potentially help save them time.

#2: Don’t Sign That Contract

Signing a contract binds you to a company, but that isn’t always a good idea. Some broker companies will offer a super low rate, have the customer sign a contract and give their debit/credit card information upfront upon booking the order. What happens is that the customer is now obligated to work with that company whether the price stays the same or even goes up in price. The verbiage in those contracts require a certain number of days that a customer is locked into the contract, usually up to 10 days after their first available ship date, and will also state that the deposit is just a broker fee and the actual quote is not locked in. The best scenario is from a customer to find a company that does not require a contract signing upfront. Those companies will give a price and stand by their quote because they have a flexible deposit. That means that if it takes slightly more then originally thought to find a hauler, the broker will just make a lesser deposit and will not change the price on the customer at the last minute.

#3: Be Close To A Major Metro Area

Auto Transporters use major expressways to travel their route and these expressways all lead to the next major metropolitan city. Because of this, nearly every auto hauler will stay within the highway system and major metropolitan areas. If a customer doesn’t live near the expressway system or within a 30 mile radius around a major city it is less likely that a hauler will want to pick up that particular vehicle unless the price is much higher to make it worth their time. There are 10,000 – 15,000 vehicles that are transported each month, so the chance that a hauler is desperate for a vehicle is not very common.

Conclusion

If a customer want to have the cheapest way to transport a car, follow those three easy steps and the great rates will follow. Mileage is not the only basis of giving customers their quotes. There are other factors that are in the calculation. If you want the cheapest price and the best service visit Auto Transport Quote Services for a hassle-free, reliable and honest service.

National Insurance Quotes for RV Plans Added to Search Tool at Revised Insurer Website Online


San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 14, 2015

Recreational vehicles require a separate coverage plan in most states apart from a regular car insurance policy. The Quotes Pros website is now helping adults find national insurance quotes for RV coverage by using its revised search portal on the web at http://quotespros.com/auto-insurance.html.

Adults who travel the country using large or small-scale RVs will now have the option of comparing agency costs for various coverage packages that are supplied nationally. Insurers in popular tourism states such as Florida, Texas, California and Wyoming are now represented in the quotation system offered for use.

“RV policies are now part of the auto industry plans that can now be quoted or explored when using the search tools on our website,” said one QuotesPros.com rep.

While recreational vehicle insurance is provided by American companies in the search finder for this year, there are still regular auto insurers that are offering plans of coverage. Motorist who are ready to change providers or seeking a range or pricing for a policy can also find SR22, renter and modified protection plans.

“The expansion that is now underway through our insurer database is opening new forms of research that any consumer can conduct for coverage pricing,” said the rep.

Quotes for homeowner and health insurance were recently added to the 2015 edition of the Quotes Pros portal. A provider update at http://quotespros.com/homeowners-insurance.html makes it possible to compare new agency coverage plans entirely on the web through a computer or smartphone.

About QuotesPros.com

The QuotesPros.com company supplies working adults with options for reviewing or comparing insurance companies using its nationwide tool on the web. The company has taken steps to make its search system better this year by adding health and life insurance companies. The QuotesPros.com company allows the public to use a zip code in place of personal data to find insurers and rates that are available daily.
