This plan is designed for those that are looking to compete in their first 100 mile mountain bike race. This 12 week plan is designed to help you gain the fitness necessary to complete 100 miles on a mountain bike in a goal time of 10-12 hours. You'll need to have some experience riding off road, and be comfortable riding in moderately technical terrain.

Most weeks will consist of 4 days of riding, 1 strength day, and 1 day for light cross training. All of the long rides are on the weekends, with shorter interval and tempo rides being performed during the week. It's necessary to have access to a heart rate monitor to take full advantage of this training plan.
