Plan Description

This plan is the latest version using all the latest TrainingPeaks features, current for 2019/20 and has been designed by Pav Bryan Performance Director at Spokes and BikesEtc Magazine’s Cycling Guru.

Only the Premium Spokes plans designed by Pav Bryan come with a free 40-week strength and conditioning plan (downloadable in session one on the calendar) and email support! If you have any problem completing your plan or have to deviate for any reason – Pav will personally recommend a solution within 48 hours. Fair usage applies.

This plan is for you if you are targeting a 12 hour time trial (TT) this year, the 12 hour World TT Championships or a similar event and you are capable of training comfortably above 700 TSS points per week. It has no more than 14:35 hours per week and can be completed with whatever measuring device you have available. It has a test style event in the final week, if you can find a similar event to enter you'd be at an advantage.

Once you have completed this plan you will be ready to start your taper into your main event. It would be advantageous for you to add some practise time trials during the final two phases. When/if doing so, please replace the most similar session during the week.

This plan presumes that you have been riding consistently for at least 4 weeks (ideally 8), if you haven't, you should check out our Preparation Phase plans before starting this.

This plan is totally compatible (upload-able/exportable) with all good platforms including Zwift, TrainerRoad, The Sufferfest and many more.

You can use any method to monitor your training, power, cadence, heart rate or rate of perceived exertion, although power is an advantage. You get key rides and further resources (links within the sessions on the calendar) to ensure you are capable across every aspect of cycling; nutrition, hydration, technique, tactics and of course performance.

All the sessions you will do come with comprehensive instructions, links to videos, blogs or downloads, plus they have the workout builder function; full power, heart rate and cadence targets (where applicable).

If you are using heart rate or RPE and would like a plan suited to this, please visit us at -> & we will gladly create one for you.

You also get access to the Spokes support groups.

You won’t find a training plan more comprehensive than this!

Sample Day 1

Tabata - Speed Style - Short

The Goal Of This Session: is to increase your leg speed & increase your efficiency 

10 minute warm-up

Ok so it's very important that you focus on technique here not power, so low resistance please. Get to your peak cadence without bouncing for 20 sec then relax for 10 sec. Do this 8 times then take 4 minutes active recovery. 

Do this set three times in total but on after the final 8 intervals go straight into cool-down.

10 minute cool-down

Here's a guide on improving pedalling efficiency:

Sample Day 1

Core Strength & Flexibility Workout (45 Min) (Pav Bryan's S&C Video)

The Goal Of This Session: is to develop core strength & flexibility, which will increase power output & comfort on the bike

We recommend that you follow the guidance of a qualified professional.

Check out Pav Bryan's video for ideas:

Sample Day 2

Pyramid Intervals - Speed Style

The Goal Of This Session: is to increase your leg speed & increase your efficiency

10 minute warm-up

5x (15 sec hard 45 sec easy),
2 min active recovery,
3x (1 min hard 2 min easy),
2 min active recovery,
2x (5 min hard 6 min easy).

As this is cadence based resistance should be low & aim to get your cadence as high as possible for the hard parts (should be sustainable for the duration). During the recovery parts reduce all resistance and spin legs. Don’t worry about Zones during this part of the session.

5 minute cool-down

Here's a guide on improving pedalling efficiency:

Sample Day 3

Spin Ups

The Goal Of This Session: is to increase your leg speed & increase your efficiency 

10 min warm-up. 

On a downhill slope or a light resistance on trainer start spinning your legs, increasing your cadence every min until you reach your max without bouncing on the bike. Then maintain for as long as possible, time how long you hold your max then aim to beat it on next attempt. 

Recover for 3 or more min then repeat as many times as you can. 

10 min cool-down.

Here's a guide on improving pedalling efficiency:

Sample Day 4

Activation Session Development

The Goal Of This Session: is to develop a day before routine (activation session).
Getting this right now will mean we know exactly how to prep your body the day before your key events so you are 100% at the start line the next day

Your coach will be happy to help with this but 
look to include your event warm-up & cool-down plus some high cadence low resistance efforts and about 5-10 minutes at race intensity

Make notes today & tomorrow on how it felt so we can come back to this and develop it over time

Focus on having everything ready for your upcoming event. Allow your mind to be filled with positive thoughts. Repeat mantras, power words or affirmations

Here's a guide we wrote on preparing for your "A" event:

Sample Day 5

FTP Test

The Goal Of This Session: is to set a benchmark or check progress against a previous score

20 min warm-up. 

20 minutes maximum sustainable power. Conduct test & note results. Compare it to your previous. Changes can mean you are fitter or fatigued. 95% of achieved in test is FTP.

20 min cool-down.

Something to help with preparing mentally for this test:

Sample Day 6

Easy Solo Ride - Tactical Focus

The Goal Of This Session: is to develop technique & tactics without putting too much stress on your body

Focus points:

Position - are you holding the position of your last bike fit? Are you keeping core stable & allowing transfer of power through legs?

Feeding & Hydration - do you know your event strategy off by heart, do you remember to do it?

Pacing - are you comfortable with your pacing plan, do you know the difference in feel better comfortable & going too hard or easy?

Technique - are you comfortable with all the required techniques for your event, is there anything you need to brush up on; riding no handed, eating & drinking on the bike, cornering, climbing, descending, anything?
