This plan is for you if: You are capable of averaging more than 500 TSS points per week. You want to get the most from winter this year and are targeting road racing next year. You are worried you'll miss the chance to maximise your off-season gains. You are training for an event next year and are looking to build power and strength in the winter with a view to building duration in the spring/summer. This plan does not include typical base training and follows a more reverse periodisation approach where you'll focus on building power output, strength (both on & off the bike), core & flexibility plus other aspects listed below. The plan does not include races but you could factor these in yourself by replacing the harder weekend session with a race (or midweek if applicable).
COMPLIMENTARY 40 Week Core/Leg Strength program included (worth $99.00)! Continue to use it long after you've finished this plan! COMPLIMENTARY Support Group access, both nutrition and training! PLUS $25.00 OFF your next plan, when you complete a short survey!
PLEASE NOTE: this plan is now out-of-date and is reflected in the pricing. While all features listed below still work, some of the links in the sessions might not and some of the newer TrainingPeaks features are unavailable. This plan has been updated and can be found in the TP store (email if you can't find it). If you experience issues with missing links, you should be able to find the blog or resource here - https://spokes.fit/blog/. If you are having trouble with the core session link, please use the paper based plan attached in the notes under day one.

This plan is the most comprehensive and user-friendly plan on the market!
You can use any method to monitor your training, power, heart rate or rate of perceived exertion, although power is an advantage. You get key rides to ensure you are capable across every aspect of cycling; nutrition, hydration, technique, tactics and of course performance. Truly personal coaching without the expense of working with a coach 1:1.
95% of the sessions you will do come with comprehensive instructions, links to videos, blogs or downloads, plus they have the workout builder function and can be directly uploaded to Garmin too complete!
This plan has four-five bike sessions and between two-four off the bike gym sessions (you do not need to have access to a gym, although this is an advantage, and when unsure about an exercise please research online). The comprehensive leg strength and core workouts are available with downloadable attachment in day one and are included in the price of this plan - normally sold for $99. It has no more than 7:39 hours per week training & can be completed with a minimum of heart rate and cadence monitors, a power meter is an advantage for any training plan.
