Peaks Coaching Group
Metric Century 8 Weeks Beginner/Intermediate is an 8 week plan designed for the Cyclist or Triathlete who trains with power, HR (Heart Rate), or RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) and can train 7-10:15 hours per week (excluding Rest Weeks). You will need to be able to devote between 2-5:15 hours to training on your weekends.
A metric century is a 100 kilometer (62 mile) cycling event. 100km events are just about the perfect distance to start as a great cycling challenge and you'll always remember your first one!
A metric century is a good “stepping stone” for distance or endurance cyclists who have set their next goal as a century ride.
62 miles is probably two to three times longer than most organized group rides, so just doing group rides won’t prepare you properly for your metric century, but this plan will!
