6 Weeks to Your 1-Day Charity Ride - Intermediate
Whether you’re riding a challenging 35 miles charity ride for the first time or stepping up to your first metric or full century ride, as with any great journey, it pays to be prepared! This 6-week training plan will help you improve your endurance and riding skills so you can nride the distance with confidence! The rides gradually build in time and effort over 4 weeks so you balance training and recovery. Then you get some easier riding leading into event day so you are feeling rested & ready! TAnd because we only get faster when we let our body recovery, there's rest days and 60 days of FREE YogaGlo to help you stay healthy!
You can ride the workouts in this plan using a heart rate monitor or you can use Rate of Perceived Exertion if you don't have a heart rate measuring device. A bike computer with cadence is also ideal but you can count pedal strokes & do some math if you prefer. Then all you need is a clock and some time to ride!
If you have an advanced training device like a Garmin 520 bike computer or other TrainingPeaks compatible device or app, you can export the workouts to your training device & make sure you're riding at just the right effort to get the most out of your training (please see TrainingPeaks for a complete list of compatible devices and apps as it is often updated). Plus coupon codes for 30 days of FREE Premium TrainingPeaks membership will give you access to in-depth views of your training data after you've uploaded it post-workout.
The Intermediate plan is for the rider who has about 1-1.2 hours to ride during the week and about 2.5 hours on weekends. It assumes you’ve already been riding this season and are now set to increase your saddle time. This plan is for the rider who has ventured beyond the bike paths and into some rides with friends or maybe even a local club.is at home riding in traffic and groups. You have some solid aerobic fitness already from doing charity rides in the past or maybe from running half or full marathons but now you want to work up to riding up to 100 miles!
