Plan Description

Training for your first endurance mountain bike race should be fun and rewarding! This 8 week plan will take you up to your 40-50 mile race. Each week involves workouts to maximize your time during the work week, and longer rides on the weekends to get you prepared for your upcoming event. This plan involves 7-9.5 hours of riding per week. Calculate your zones on week 2 with a field test. You can use heart rate or a power meter for this program.
