Plan Description

You’ve signed up for SBT GRVL, and now you have questions: Is riding at 7,000 ft different than sea level?  What kind of gravel do they have in those parts?  Is riding 140 miles as hard as it seems? And will someone please clarify how a remote mountain town in Colorado has any business having a steamboat much less naming their town that? 

Don't show up to Steamboat with a bike and a prayer - get a plan that answers all your questions and delivers the legs of your life.

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.
