Plan Description

The 12-week Cycling Off-Season Base Builder plan is ideal for intermediate and advanced riders who are looking to build base fitness. Whether your goals for next season are sportives, road races or time trials, this structured plan will help you to lay down the essential foundations for success.

You should already be capable of comfortably completing a 100 km (60 mile) ride and regularly logging five-to-six hours of riding time per week.

Plan is structured to be done on a smart trainer else can be done outdoors. 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 6-10 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.
