Cycling: Beginning Cyclist - Get Fit: 1.5 to 3.25 hrs/wk
Gale BernhardtAll plans by this Coach
This 12-Week training plan is designed for the beginning cyclist that is looking for a plan to follow to get fit. This plan begins with three, 30-minute rides and builds to a goal-ride of 24 to 30 miles on Saturday of Week 11. Week 12 is a rest week with a 5-mile time trial included to benchmark your fitness.
Each week of the plan has three cycling workouts, one equipment or technique tip, a nutrition tip and one of my favorite motivational quotes. A Kudo comment is included on one ride each week to help keep you on track. Have a look at the plan preview and the goals listed below to see if this plan is right for you.
Goals of the plan:
- Ride three times per week for 12 weeks to build fitness
- Build the long weekend ride from 30 minutes to a goal, destination ride around 24 to 30 miles. (This will take you around 2 hours if you average 12 to 15 miles per hour (mph).)
- Establish cycling as a routine.
- Get fit.
