This 8-week plan is for the novice cyclist who currently cycles 30-45 minutes a few times per week, either on the road or a stationary bike. Once you begin the plan you should be able to commit to 4 days of riding each week--the longest weekday ride is 45 minutes and the longest weekend ride will build to 2 hours.
