Plan Description

The 12-week Improvers’ plan is suitable for a variety of cyclists with the common end goal of completing a 100 kilometre (60-mile) sportive or ride. To start the plan, you should be capable of riding for 90 minutes. It is also ideal for cyclists who ride regularly but haven’t followed a structured training plan before or who are returning to the sport after a bit of a lay-off. If you are currently fit and active, doing at least three 60-minute bouts of exercise a week, but not necessarily a cyclist, this is also the plan for you. The training weeks are typically broken down into three rides, two mid-week and one at the weekend. There is also an optional bonus session that gives you the opportunity to do some cross training. The volume of training is between 3-6.5 hours per week and, with flexible days included, it can easily be adjusted to fit the plan around your life. The exception is in R&R weeks every fourth week when training is reduced culminating with self-testing. These R&R weeks will allow for adaptation and improved performance.
