The United States Association of Blind Athletes (USABA) will host the second Cycling Development Camp of 2015 for riders who are blind and visually impaired at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, September 20-27, 2015. The camp is open to both male and female participants and military Veterans and Active Duty Service Members are strongly encouraged to apply. Approved military athletes are fully funded to the camp. Program fees for non-military athletes will be no more than $315 and includes all components of the camp (accommodations, ground transportation, meals, equipment, training, etc.). Riders must possess the fitness and equipment necessary to make it through the week-long cycling camp.
Only road tandems are approved equipment for this camp. If you do not have a bike or a pilot (partner) to ride with you at camp, USABA may be able to provide them, so please notify USABA when you apply.
Cyclists will learn bike handling skills, safe riding techniques and road racing strategies. Riders are on their bikes twice per day and will ride 100 miles for the week. Athletes will practice skills, engage in race simulations and have classroom discussions nightly.
