Length

Plan Description

This is a 10 week plan that builds your specific fitness for a bike packing adventure.

This plan has been used by people who have finished 1-2 week bike packing trips, long weekend trips and even higher intensity 'FKT' or fast-bike-packs.

Is This Plan For You?

This plan assumes you have some fitness base coming into these last 2-3 months but it is flexible to add time/challenge depending your ability/experience AND the demands of your trip.
-
If you are planning something very extreme or very new and nervous about a first bike packing trip then please consider a phone consultation and/or 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 can use a structured download or you can read the description and complete the workout by Feeling or using HR.
-
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.
-

I offer 3 months 100% Made For You Plans, which often works better as it takes your schedule, goals, equipment, and abilities into account - https://consummateathlete.com/training-plans/
