Arizona: inGamba at Canyon Ranch

$7,950

When it comes to healthy living and holistic wellness retreats, Canyon Ranch is the gold standard. Since 1979 they’ve been at the forefront of health and fitness vacations, redefining what it means to be a spa destination. As the world’s best bike touring company, we know a thing or two about setting high standards too, so when it came to finding the ultimate wellness resort in the US for a new kind of inGamba experience, Canyon Ranch was the obvious choice. 

This retreat is a unique chance to ride plenty of early season miles surrounded by the beautiful, untouched landscape of rural Arizona, while also taking full advantage of the expertise and hospitality that has made Canyon Ranch famous the world over. Their integrative approach to wellness – including mind, body and spirit – will leave you refreshed and reinvigorated, with a better understanding of how your body functions and the role your mind plays in your fitness. There’s no better way to start the riding season. 

Some of the inGamba crew recently spent a few days at Canyon Ranch, researching all that the resort had to offer so that we could build this trip for you. See what one of the team had to say about the experience over on our journal

Day by Day Breakdown

1

Riding around Canyon Ranch

Saguaro cactus as far as the eye can see, a morning sky full of pink, fields of boulders dotting the landscape and a patch of pines well above the city will be among the bits of scenery you will encounter while exploring. the rustic roads around Tucson. You'll find the big mountain (Lemmon), of course, but you'll also be treated to rolling rural roads that give way to vistas of saguaros as you weave through some of Tucson's most-beloved areas like Gates Pass and Saguaro Monument East. Be prepared for unique, desert beauty as we invite you to explore one of America's favorite cycling destinations. As the urban streets of Tucson fade in the first few miles of the day, you're likely to see a little tumbleweed roll by to remind you that you're truly in the wild west.

Eros Poli

The Champion

The night before Eros Poli took victory atop Mont Ventoux he couldn’t sleep. It was not like he was dreaming of victory or even had the slightest idea the next day's stage would change his life forever. It was just that it was hot. Unbearably, unsleepably hot in his less-than stellar French hotel. His roommate had taken his mattress off the bed and was sleeping on the small balcony outside their room. And the man who would shortly become known as Monsieur Ventoux was watching football, Italy vs. Brazil in the World Cup final, to be exact. Italy lost. The following morning as Eros dragged his weary, tired legs out of bed and down the stairs, as there was no lift, James Brown came into his head. “I feel good, I knew that I would now,” started to repeat over and over in his head. As it would the rest of the day. He felt good and the rest, as they say, is history.

Manuel Cardoso

The Quiet Crusher

Manuel Cardoso is no longer sitting on the front of the pack, pulling everyone along at what some would describe as a “brisk” pace and what others are unable to describe at all, because they're too busy gasping for breath and holding onto the wheel in front of them for dear life. Manuel is now sitting just slightly off the back of the pack. As I look back, I realize he has that look on his face. The look which struck fear in the hearts of the Pro Peleton for many years. The look which is part grin, part mischievous child and all business. He is about to start some shenanigans. Sure enough, just a few kilometers later and Manuel has picked one lucky contestant out of the pack and they are sitting-in, waiting, like predators, for the perfect moment. For Manuel, just like when he raced pro, this is when the road turns slightly up, a spot in the road where it gets tough for everyone. And he accelerates with his breakaway “partner” in tow. It is something to see. He ramps it up to a speed with which no one can latch onto the back and with such precision you have to question whether or not you actually want to try and close the gap he has created. And you can’t see it, but you just know, he is grinning from ear-to-ear.
