Plan Description

This plan is the latest version using all the latest TrainingPeaks features, current for 2019/20 and has been designed by Pav Bryan Performance Director at Spokes and BikesEtc Magazine’s Cycling Guru.

Only the Premium Spokes plans designed by Pav Bryan come with a free 40-week strength and conditioning plan (downloadable in session one on the calendar) and email support! If you have any problem completing your plan or have to deviate for any reason – Pav will personally recommend a solution within 48 hours. Fair usage applies.

This plan is designed for anyone taking on the Mallorca 312. Ideally, you will be able to ride around 100 miles / 160 kilometres already and have access to terrain similar to what you will face on the day of your event. If not, you should try to accommodate this in some way. If you can't ride this distance yet, simply drop it to what you are capable of and then spread the gap out over the course of the plan. Where available, I have included a route map. Where applicable, if you are doing a shorter route, you could consider reducing the longer ride so that it maxes out at no more than your target distance. Consider doing a course recce, if you're unfamiliar, and making your longer rides as similar to the event itself as possible; hills and terrain.

Once you have completed this plan you will be ready to start your taper into your main event. There will be plenty of time to do some longer test events, Gran Fondo's or Audax's, these will be advantageous and you should either move the calendar around to accommodate these, or, replace the most similar session that week.

This plan includes 2x core sessions per week, with link to instructional video which you can follow. It has one key ride per week, which must be done - you do not need to worry about the time, just get the miles completed. It has two rest days per week and the remaining sessions compliment the key ride. You can change the hill reps to be more similar to the type of hill you will face during your event.

This plan presumes that you have been riding consistently for at least 4 weeks (ideally 8), if you haven't, you should check out our Preparation Phase plans before starting this.

This plan is totally compatible (upload-able/exportable) with all good platforms including Zwift, TrainerRoad, The Sufferfest and many more.

You can use any method to monitor your training, power, cadence, heart rate or rate of perceived exertion, although power is an advantage. You get key rides and further resources (links within the sessions on the calendar) to ensure you are capable across every aspect of cycling; nutrition, hydration, technique, tactics and of course performance.

All the sessions you will do come with comprehensive instructions, links to videos, blogs or downloads, plus they have the workout builder function; full power, heart rate and cadence targets (where applicable).

If you are using heart rate or RPE and would like a plan suited to this, please visit us at -> spokes.fit & we will gladly create one for you.

You also get access to the Spokes support groups.

You won’t find a training plan more comprehensive than this!
