Monterey Jr. Cycling Development Camp

Here’s an update from Gordon and Sue Martine on their annual team building camp for the local Junior Cycling Team that was held earlier this year…


We all seemed to have a great trip down to San Luis Obispo for our 2018 team building camp. We had 12 juniors and 8 volunteers. It was amazing that all the adults were pretty shelled after each ride and the kids seem to recover almost immediately!  The weather held out for most of the day with a 20 minute hail storm. And, as far as I was concerned, I believe the hail is better than rain because we were not sopping wet and cold for the rest of the day. Day one of camp ended up being 78 mile & 7,825ft climbing.  We had a nice team dinner in the hotel conference room.  Sue and I had fun finding small tokens that reminded us of each junior that we presented.  We also had some nice donated items to give each athlete.  

On Sunday, we did a 60 mile ride with 2700 feet of climbing. It was a beautiful day out and it warmed up nicely compared to Saturday. We took team pictures at a scenic park overlooking the ocean. Attached, you will find some wonderful pictures shot by Gabe Stewart.

I would like to thank all our dedicated volunteers and sponsors for making this a fun and safe event.  We already have the date for the 2019 team building camp set for Saturday and Sunday February 16-17th.   –  Gordon & Sue Martine
