We are excited about some fun changes to the 2017 Christian Cycling Spring Training Trip this April! We return to an excellent venue, great routes and dining!

We found a great facility last year with some interesting perks @ Living Waters Bible Camp in Westby.

Below are the key points to note for the trip this year:

>The camp staff will handle all of our meal preparations and cleanup! No more organizing trips to Costco and time cooking and cleaning up (although some people may miss scrubbing dishes).

>The camp facilities will have bunk style housing for the majority of the men, but we’ve arranged for more private facilities for the couples and the women as needed.

>The camp does have family camp style activities that we COULD arrange for the group is we desire and if weather permits (outdoor climbing wall, ziplines, paintball, etc).

>We are organizing a bible study for those who’d like to take part in one with us.

>There are MANY new routes for us to experience. Many more opportunities for shorter loops and plenty of paved roads to choose from. 

 

Here are a couple potential routes:
