This plan is designed for those that are looking to push themselves to compete in a 100 mile mountain bike race. This 12 week plan is designed to help you gain the fitness and strength necessary to complete 100 miles on a mountain bike in a goal time of 9-10 hours. You'll need to have ample experience riding off road, be comfortable riding in technical terrain, and have some experience completing long mountain bike races/rides.
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.
