Plan Description

Do you have responsibilities?  Do you receive bills in the mail? Do people depend on you? Have you also been diagnosed ‘Gravel Curious?’

Gravel racing is for everyone, but if you looked at lots of training plans you might think you’d have to tell your employer you need to change to part-time so you could free up the spare 10-15 hours a week you’ll need to just get fit enough just to finish.

Lies!  All of it lies!

Two things can be true at once: you can train for a gravel race and have a life.  Gravel God - Time Crunched Fondo has it all:


  1. Doable training weeks - Keep your job, your significant other, and get crazy fit.

  2. Exportable structured workouts (Zwift) - Because you can’t spend 30 minutes getting dressed to go outside.

  3. Simplified strength workouts - short, deadly strength workouts.  Get explosive on the bike and ripped.

  4. Power-based training - Structured power-based workouts cut the fluff on training time.

  5. Mobility workouts - Because you should be able to touch your toes.

  6. Race Tactics - Skip all the rookie errors.

  7. This is Gravel Ebook - Learn more than you ever wanted to about training and racing.

  8. Human contact - Email me at and I won’t ignore you.

Gravel God Cycling Coaching

I'm a cycling coach and writer. When I'm not helping my athletes get faster on a bike I write obvious, overlooked training content that makes cycling training easy to understand.

I think racing and training is crucial to living your best life, and living your best life is about looking back and seeing how much more Badass you are now than your past self.

Hit me up. Let's go beat the past together.
