Best Buddies International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting friendship and development for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), is thrilled to unveil the inaugural 2023 Best Buddies Breakaway Camp: Malibu Ladies’ Edition. This exclusive four-day cycling adventure is designed specifically for women.

Led by esteemed athletes Leanda Cave, a four-time Triathlon World Champion, and Mari Holden, a Cycling Olympian, the camp will provide expert coaching on mountainous terrains, training methods, recovery techniques, nutrition, and bike handling skills. Leanda Cave’s impressive accolades, including being recognized as one of the “10 Fittest Women in the World,” make her an invaluable coach and mentor. Mari Holden, a celebrated cycling icon and World Champion, brings her wealth of experience and Olympic representation to the USA.

Leanda Cave expressed her excitement, saying, “Cycling has always brought me joy and happiness throughout my 32-year journey. It’s an empowering sport where I feel in control, with my body as the machine and the bike as my companion. I can’t wait to ride in the Santa Monica Mountains, surrounded by peaceful nature and breathtaking coastal views.”

Mari Holden added, “I am truly honored to co-lead this camp with Leanda. Her accomplishments are truly admirable, and together, we will provide valuable insights to enhance fitness, cycling skills, and safety in a supportive and enjoyable atmosphere. The camp’s location is extraordinary, and the roads we’ll ride on are some of my personal favorites in the country. It will undoubtedly be an unforgettable cycling adventure.”

The Best Buddies Breakaway Camp: Malibu Ladies’ Edition will take place against the backdrop of the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village. Located in the stunning Santa Monica Mountains, this camp offers a limited number of participants the chance to explore scenic canyon roads and rocky hillsides while reveling in breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. The camp also provides opportunities for hiking, yoga, fostering new friendships, and learning about the mission of Best Buddies.

Camp amenities include personalized correspondence with designated coaches before the event, four days of supported rides guided by celebrity coaches, carefully curated routes featuring iconic climbs and descents in Malibu, and on-site mechanic support. Campers will enjoy fully-catered rest stops offering health-conscious nutrition, route overviews, and the option for one-on-one sessions with coaches throughout the camp.

Renowned bicycle brand Pinarello will be present at the camp, offering participants the opportunity to test-ride their latest high-performance road and gravel bikes.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
