Are you a recreational cyclist with a basic level of cycling fitness (1-2 rides a week, 3-4 hours a week)? Do you lack the time to train 4-5 times a week, but do you want to prepare for a medio-/granfondo or similar ride anyway? Than you have found the right plan!
In 13 weeks time, with only 3 rides a week (two shorter and one longer ride), this plan prepares you for a mediofondo or granfondo (or a similar recreational ride) of about 100-120k or 60-75 miles.
The plan starts with a couple of weeks of easy buildup, including some cycling technique drills you can practise. After that, it continues building up endurance, while also preparing you for a hilly course with hill training and different kinds of interval training.
