THE FIRST TEAM EVER TO GO ON TRAININGCAMP BY TRAIN
While the bicycle is a fantastic sustainable mobility solution, professional cycling is still a part of the sustainability problem. From rows of cars and litter in the roadside to excessive air travel: there must be a different way.
The first team of BEAT Cycling Club is the first team ever to go on a training camp to Girona and the Catalonia region entirely by train. The perfect training camp location for effective training and sustainable travel.
Both riders and equipment will be transported to Catalonia by train to achieve the most sustainable version of the training camp.
The very first TRAINing camp. Powered by the Catalan Tourist Board, Raillogix, Interrail & RCC Container Trading.
BY TRAIN. IT IS POSSIBLE AND EASY. SO WHY NOT?
We like to challenge the status quo in cycling, a stance we've taken since our inception, especially in the realm of sustainability. However, we prefer to do so by showcasing what is already possible, in collaboration with partners who can make it happen.
Last year, we were the first to introduce an electric vehicle fleet, demonstrating that it is a fantastic alternative in cycling. This year, we are illustrating how the train can support all our training camp ambitions as a sustainable alternative to flying.
We invite you to join us in this journey, hoping to inspire you. To take the train, whether as an individual, team, or company. Additionally, we aim to show that freight transportation on the rail doesn't have to be complicated.
EVEN OUR EQUIPMENT JUMPS ON THE TRAIN
We naturally want our equipment to be sustainably transported as well, and it turned out to be super easy! Our container is brought from door to door with all the materials inside. Everything is taken care of.
It's as simple as that! At least, with the help of Raillogix and RCC. RCC provided us with the cool container, and Raillogix has revolutionized goods transport on the rail. They go wherever we go. Our container has been brought from door to door in record time!
