We are delighted that the escapar cycling retreat will be hosting UCI professional road cyclist Jen George for two weeks in February/March 2020.  So if you've not already booked your winter training camp, here's your chance to join us in sunny Spain for a winter training or ride week with a pro.

She's the current Scottish Road Race National Champion having won in 2018 and 2019, a World Masters Team pursuit winner, World Masters Individual pursuit Silver medalist and holds the British 2km pursuit record.


Jen is also a qualified BC Level 3 road race coach, and brings fun and a wealth of international racing and training expertise to the table. Coaching athletes at all levels for road, track and indoors, Jen holds a BSc in Physiology and Sports Science and has a long history of personal and structured coaching with Go Faster Training, Technogym, Virgin and LA Fitness.

Jen will ride for the Brazillian team, Memorial Santos in 2020 having previously raced for Drops Cycling, Storey Racing and Torelli-Assure. She'll be aiming to support her teammates to greatness in 2020 and adding to her Palmares with top 10 UCI results and podium places.


You'll join a small group of no more than 8 riders to experience some of the best routes and rides the Alicante and Valencia regions have to offer. Like many of the international and Spanish Professional teams who train and race in the area throughout the year, Jen has raced professionally in Valencia, and is looking forward to riding with guests in the fabulous mountains and valleys that we call home.
