Bike Packing - Specific Build Phase - 2 Months Until Adventure!

All plans by this Coach


12 Weeks

Plan Description

This is a bike packing plan that helps you build your specific fitness for a bike packing adventure.

The ideas in this plan have been used by people who have finished 1-2 week bike packing trips, long weekend trips and higher intensity 'FKT' or fast-bike-packs.

Is This Plan For You?

This plan assumes you have some fitness base coming into these last 2 months but it is flexible to add time/challenge depending your ability/experience AND the demands of your trip.
If you are on the extremes of being very elite (or doing something very extreme) or very new and nervous about a first bike packing trip then please consider a phone consultation, if not a custom 3-Month Training Plan to better address your ability and goals. (see below)

What Does It Include?

Structured Workout Downloads are included for most bike workouts ( for Garmin / Zwift Etc ). Some workouts do not have download to keep thing simple and provide freedom from focus and devices! (e.g. ride endurance for 3 hours).

Because this is the last 2 months before your event/adventure it is assumed you will aim to get outside on your bike packing bike at least 1x per week.
A basic core routine and 1-2 weekly yoga sessions are provided and encouraged throughout the plan
You can use this plan by HR, Power or RPE - you do not need to use downloads as the title and description of each workout should allow for completion of the key elements of the workout.
The plan ranges between 6-16 hours a week depending on whether you extend workouts and do optional workouts (or not!). Options to extend are are noted and are your description based on your schedule, fitness and goals.
Want a Custom Training Plan?

I offer 3 months 100% Made For You Plans, which often works better as it takes your schedule, goals, equipment, and abilities into account -
