Plan Description




Are you getting ready for a Fondo or Charity Ride? Our 3 Month Road Fondo and Charity Ride Training Plan is your ticket to success!

Designed by professional cycling coach Peter Glassford, this comprehensive plan caters to busy athletes who want to maximize their performance on the road. Whether you're a seasoned rider or new to endurance events, this plan has everything you need to reach your goals.


Is This Plan For You?

It is appropriate for riders taking on a road fondo or charity ride who have some experience with riding but you do not need to be a serious pro. It is designed for busy people who have 5-8 hours of training most weeks with some flexibility to do a couple of longer weekend rides over the 3 months. The plan does provide options to extend or shorten workouts based on your schedule so can be used by newer riders or more experienced riders.


Key Features:

Tailored Workouts: We understand the demands of balancing life and training. That's why our plan offers workouts that seamlessly fit into your schedule, with options to include indoor sessions, cross-training, and core/strength exercises.

Dynamic Training: Peter's expertise ensures a mix of intensity sessions and longer weekend rides to boost your endurance and power. You'll tackle specific rides that mimic the challenges of road fondos and charity events.

Fueling and Pacing Guidance: Fueling smart and pacing right are keys to success. The plan provides valuable tips and strategies to keep you fueled and performing at your best throughout your rides.

Group Ride Integration: Optional group rides add a dynamic edge to your training, preparing you for the unpredictability of event-day riding and to maximize your performance through tactics and efficiency.

Downloadable Structured Workouts: Enjoy the convenience of downloadable workouts for Garmin, Wahoo, Zwift and more. Track your progress and stay motivated with structured training. All workouts also include comprehensive descriptions so you can also elect to perform workouts based on the description instead of using downloads.
