8 Weeks

Plan Description

This 8-week plan will prepare you for a 60 mile mountain bike race with challenging terrain. The plan starts out with a field test so you can determine your heart rate or power training zones. If you have a busy work schedule, the intervals can be done on your road or mountain bike. On the weekends, hit the trails for a gradual build each weekend.
