A better base training solution
BaseCamp is a training, strength, and nutrition program for cyclists and triathletes that gives you the best of all worlds: a professional training plan, expert advice, and a like-minded training community.
I’ve been riding and racing bikes since age 15. I’m now 52. I’ve spent time at the Olympic Training Center, paid for a few coaches and have a few results I’m proud of. Nothing has gotten me more prepared for a proper riding season than BaseCamp. Thank you Tim Cusick and the rest of the team! You made my Winter!

What is BaseCamp?
BaseCamp is a cross between a reasonably-priced training plan and an expensive personal coach, with the added benefit of a social training community to support you throughout the 16 week base training program and beyond.
Train with the pros
All BaseCamp members have access to our expert coaching team. Ride with us online, ask us questions, and interact with us in our Facebook group and on Zoom meetings. Hang out with 3x world champion Amber Neben, USA's winningest pro Scott Moninger, Giant/Liv mountain bike pro Serena Bishop Gordon, former mountain bike pro and USAC level 1 coach Brig Brandt, world-class athlete Rebecca Rusch, and Velocious master coach and TrainingPeaks WKO product leader Tim Cusick.
Tim's experience at creating subtle workouts and workout progressions resulted in more dramatic change in less time than when I was working with a Level 2 USAC coach. And having access to all of the expert coaches added breadth to the experience. The Strava group was especially important for me as it built comradery with the other athletes and helped me to dig deeper when I saw them dig deeper.

The one-time payment for the entire 16-week training program costs just a bit more than a training plain but a lot less than a private coach. If you choose the Pro package for a small amount more, you'll get nutrition support and a complete strength training plan, too!
Social Training Community
Our diverse community of like-minded athletes will take away those winter doldrums. No more watching Grand Tour reruns in the basement...train where you belong! Join other riders from around the world to train, ride, and work together to achieve your goals. Friendly competitions, group rides, and virtual social gatherings help keep us motivated.
BaseCamp is such an excellent program, which, by the way, had an incredible effect on Liz, who this summer is a monster!

Frequently Asked questions
Do we ride together?
We do! It's part of how we live our mission: train where you belong. We offer numerous coach-led workout rides and ad hoc social meet ups.
I'm new to cycling. Is this program too advanced for me?
Not at all! We're really excited you're here. BaseCamp makes it possible for cyclists of all levels to interact with top professionals and coaches, and to learn as they train.
Do I need to do all the training indoors?
All workouts can be done indoors or outdoors. For indoor workouts, you can link Zwift, RGT, or other third-party apps to your TrainingPeaks account to sync the workouts seamlessly. For outdoor workouts, link Garmin Connect or other head unit applications to load workouts automatically.
Do I need a smart trainer or a power meter?
No; our structured workouts also include heart rate targets. However, a smart trainer or power meter is more precise and will enhance the program for you.
What if I want strength training and nutrition guidance?
We've got you covered! You can choose the membership level that will provide the strength and nutrition support you need.
