Accommodation

You will be provided five nights of premium accommodation during this cycling holiday. Accommodation is on-site at Can Campolier, a 17th century villa, located just two kilometers from famous cycling climb Rocacorba and Lake Banyoles.

Can Campolier

Dating back to the 17th century, Can Campolier is a historic Catalonian treasure. The current buildings have been carefully restored in 2018 to provide luxurious accommodation within the ancient stone walls. Each room has a private ensuite bathroom and access to the villa's well-equipped communal kitchen.

Program

Rocacorba Cycling is the culmination of passionate pursuit and a decade of hard work. After completing engineering degrees in South Africa, Ash and Carl moved to Europe in pursuit of a dream: pro cycling. With the signing of a contract in 2010, that dream became a reality but the pursuit did not end there.

Shifting the goal posts to becoming one of the sports top competitors saw Ash take wins and podiums in some of cycling biggest races and a Commonwealth medal in Glasgow, Scotland.

However, winning on the bike was never the only goal: changing the very fabric of female pro cycling remains a constant battle but one she champions with her widely published opinions on the sport and the direction it needs to take. Rocacorba Cycling is the next step, the product of that battle, a step towards equality, a step towards sustainability, and a chance to shape the future.
