Plan Description

Our tried and tested LW Coaching 50 Mile Mountain Bike Race - Personal Record Plan has been updated with TrainingPeaks structured workouts to make the most of both indoor and outdoor riding opportunities. For outdoor training, power (watts), TSS and IF targets can be downloaded to your Garmin. For indoor training, download your plan to your favorite Smart Trainer app such as Zwift, Rouvy or Trainer Road.

This plan combines the speed required for cross country with the endurance required to keep up the pace and be fast for 50 miles.

This plan is paced by power (watts), heart rate and perceived exertion. At a minimum, a heart rate monitor is recommended to follow this training plan. A power meter and smart trainer are optional (and highly advantageous) extras. A power meter or smart trainer is not required to successfully follow this training plan.

This is the plan for the mountain biker who is familiar with the 50 mile distance and has set a goal to finish the next one in a personal record time - you want to go faster and place higher than you have before.

You must have competed in at least one 50 mile race prior to starting this plan and have been riding 4-5 times per week recently. This is an intensive plan designed to push the envelope of your performance. You should be confident riding fast on dirt roads and single track and racing in close proximity to other riders.
