This plan has been designed by Pav Bryan Performance Director at Spokes and BikesEtc Magazine’s Cycling Guru.
This plan is for you if you are targeting a 3-day event (can be race, tour, or any paced event) this year and are comfortable training up to 500 TSS points per week, if you are unsure on what this is, feel free to email me via firstname.lastname@example.org. Note: it is highly recommended that you choose our 20 week version of this plan for this type of event.
Once you have completed this plan you will be ready to start your taper into your main event. It would be advantageous for you to add some practise rides (similar to your event) during the final two phases. When/if doing so, please replace the most similar session(s) during the week.
This plan presumes that you have been riding consistently for at least 4 weeks (ideally 8), if you haven't, you should check out our Preparation Phase plans before starting this.
This plan is totally compatible (upload-able/exportable) with all good platforms including Zwift, TrainerRoad, The Sufferfest and many more.
You can use any method to monitor your training, power, cadence, heart rate or rate of perceived exertion, although power is an advantage. You get key rides and further resources (links within the sessions on the calendar) to ensure you are capable across every aspect of cycling; nutrition, hydration, technique, tactics and of course performance.
All the sessions you will do come with comprehensive instructions, links to videos, blogs or downloads, plus they have the workout builder function; full power, heart rate and cadence targets (where applicable).
If you are using heart rate or RPE and would like a plan suited to this, please visit us at -> spokes.fit & we will gladly create one for you.
You also get access to the Spokes support groups.
You won’t find a training plan more comprehensive than this!
