  2023 Cheaha Challenge Climb & Descend Camp

Q: Ever hesitated in participating in an ‘epic climb’ event because you weren’t sure you could do it?                                                                                                                Q: Do you shy away from descents because you’re not sure you can handle the high speeds and sharp turns?                                                                                              Q: Do you already have the ability and strength to climb and descend with confidence and think you don’t need (or want) any more tips?                                                    Q: Are you somewhere in between a ‘newbie’ and a seasoned cyclist?

In other words, the Cheaha Climbing Camp can benefit ANY cyclist.   ‘Coach’ Robert will share Climbing and Descending skills and drills in this 3-day Camp, that will empower you to climb and descend beyond your current capabilities and comfort zone.  

CAMP RESULTS:  Participants who had historical ride data prior to the Camp, 100% of them set multiple new PR's on the same routes....after the Camp.  One "A" level rider set 26 new PR's out of 29 segments on the climbing section of the Cheaha route.  Those without prior ride data, 100% of them experienced noticeable increase in climbing ability, as well.  THAT'S RESULTS!!!

ABOUT YOUR COACH:  ’Coach’ Robert Wilhite, started MyCycleCoach.com in 2005.  Racing motorcycles at speeds of 200mph, an expert in biomechanics, and his natural-born teacher personality, makes Coach Robert the most unique cycling coach you’ll ever meet.  His 266,000 miles ridden (and still counting) on a road bike, including 4 years racing, certainly helps, too.  Click HERE to Learn More
