This plan is designed for an athlete that has done a century in the past and needs a little structure to help complete a Century ride. This plan is fast-paced, based on mileage, not time or power. I have included notes for you each week and will send you information I think all cyclists should know. If you have any questions please send me an email.

I am a USACycling Level 1 coach. I have experience working with athletes from the USA and other parts of the world who have different talents, abilities, and goals. I stay current with the new theories in coaching endurance and sprint athletes as well as use software such as WKO4 to help evaluate fitness and increase power.

I am very good at helping athletes achieve their cycling goals. I have seen & worked w/ coaches that didn’t understand what came easy for them was not easy for others.
