Plan Description

This Training Plan is an 10 Week plan designed to help build you up to doing a Gran-fondo of 80 or more KM. It assumes that you have a base of fitness before beginning the program, and will help you to fine tune your riding for a long day in the saddle. By taking you through 2 build phases, and a short taper for the event.
