Finish Strong at Mohican

It can be used with other Marathon distance mountain bike races like Big Frog 65 in the NUE series.

This plan is for the Beginner / Intermediate cyclist who wants to complete the Mohican 100K mountain bike race. You should be able to dedicate around 10 hours per week for training. The beginning, base phase of the plan includes strength training, so having access to the gym is helpful.

Most of the bike workouts are power based, but you can adjust if you only have heart rate equipment.
