Plan Description

Thanks for looking at the 'Ride Comfortable, Ride Happy' Training Plan inspired by the book "Saddle, Sore"


This plan is designed to help newer riders follow a first training plan. It makes reference to many of the concepts discussed in the book, "Saddle, Sore" to make sure you stay healthy on the bike.


See www.saddlesorewomen.com for more on the book and concepts around comfort on the bike.


This plan is best used when your racing calendar is lighter and you can focus on training frequently and with great focus. It uses a fair bit of intensity to keep your fitness improving, work on your skills and also decrease time on the saddle.


Volume is limited to under 8 hours including yoga and core to help you stay strong and mobile. These concepts are big takeaways from "Saddle, Sore" put into an actionable plan for you!
