Description

This plan is designed to help you develop the fitness to complete a major bike packing event to a good standard.

The plan is for athletes at the intermediate and advanced levels who have either completed previous similar events or have a strong cycling background. It can be used for either road, gravel or mountain bike events.

As a guide: before starting this plan you should have a good background in cycling and have completed a minimum of several one day rides further than 160k (100 miles) on road or gravel tracks or 100km (60 miles) rides on mountain bike terrain.

The plan is based on a gradual increase in volume and intensity that builds with your fitness. Higher intensity sessions are planned during weekdays, to make effective use of the often limited available training time during the working week. Weekends are used to build endurance and volume as well as practice riding and logistical skills.
