Australia’s Original and Number One Alpine Cycling Training Camps!
“New found confidence has me prepared to put more power through the pedals and I’m zipping up to Kinglake with spare gears these days, which feels awesome” – Kelly
“Just thought I would drop you a note to say thank you for a great camp. It was very well run and organized and even for someone who has been around a while I gained a lot from the seminars” – Bill
“Thanks to Jodie and yourself putting together such a great event. I would love to provide some recommendations to improve future camps, however, the four days delivered exactly what I’d hoped for. Both support riders in my group provided valuable tips for training and racing which I look forward to putting to practice” – Brett

If you’re a serious recreational or racing cyclist that wants to get more out of your cycling then the Bright Boot Camp is the Cycling Training Camp for you!
Many riders use our camp as training for their mid year European cycling trip, the Tour of Bright, SCODY 3 Peaks Challenge or the Audax Alpine Classic and Audax ACE 250.
Taking part in one of Australia’s most scenic Alpine areas, the Bright Boot Camp will give you the chance to climb Mt Buffalo, Mt Hotham, Tawonga Gap and Falls Creek during four days of intense cycling heaven. It’s one of the best Cycling Training Camps in Australia. We have been running our cycling training camps in Bright since 2007.
What is the Bright Boot Camp About?
The Bright Boot Camp is structured around either the serious recreational rider or club racing rider who is looking for a challenging four days of riding. Not intended to be an easy four days this cycling training camp is focused on helping improve your fitness and general well-being as a cyclist. We provide informative lectures on improving cycling performance. Riders that have attended these cycling training camps regularly go up a racing grade soon after it.
Is there a difference between the Nov and Feb/March camps?
The Melbourne Cup weekend cycling training camps have a slight focus towards final preparation for the Tour of Bright race which is run in the area four weekends later. However, we ensure that this doesn’t deviate from the serious recreational rider’s enjoyment of the camp. It’s also a cooler time of the year than the Feb/March camp. The Feb/March cycling training camps are still as tough and usually the weather is a little hotter.
Who attends the camp?
Riders that attend these cycling training camps are keen races or serious recreational cyclists that may have ridden rides like “Around the bay in a day”, “The Alpine Classic” or the “Great Victorian bike ride” and are looking for the next big event. This is not to say that people that haven’t ridden these events can’t come to the camp. We get a good cross section of abilities and cater for them accordingly. Riders or groups of riders can also attend the camp and provide their own accommodation if they choose. We have people from all-around the world attend the camp. Many riders use our camp as training for their mid year European cycling trips, the Tour of Bright, the SCODY 3 Peaks Challenge or the Audax Alpine Classic.
How hard is it?
This is four big days of riding through some of the largest accessible climbs to cyclists in Australia. You do need to have a good cycling base before coming to this camp. For some, the weekend is filled with just four things; riding, attending the seminars, eating and sleeping. We do have shorter versions of the rides for those that want to take it a little easier or don’t meet the fitness requirements to climb to the top of Hotham and Falls Creek.

Do you have on road support?
Yes, we provide comprehensive on road assistance to all riders with support vehicles and support riders that perform “domestique” duties and provide coaching assistance during the rides, you just have to ask them.
There are strictly a limited number of spaces available. Early booking is essential to ensure you secure your place. Please register your interest so that you can keep up with the latest news and updates leading up to our camp weekends.
