This plan has been designed by Pav Bryan, Performance Director at Spokes.

Have you entered the Majorca/Mallorca 312? Want to complete the ride comfortably and enjoy the day? This plan is for you!. It focuses on just one long ride per week, making training the rest of the time family & work friendly. It has a test style event in the final week, if you can find a similar event to enter you'd be at an advantage. After which you enter your taper (notes about that included), so you need to be at least 21 weeks away before starting this (email me for help if you're unsure!).

COMPLIMENTARY Support Group access, both nutrition and training!
