Three months to a Century is a nice amount of time to train for a 100-mile event, not too short and not too long. The training is designed for the beginner cyclist. I will include with the training schedule a "Things to Know" list, tidbits of information every cyclist should know. The first month will help to establish miles, the second and third month continues to increase your mileage but includes intervals to help increase your speed and enhance your aerobic system

I am a USACycling Level 1 coach. I have experience working with athletes from the USA and other parts of the world who have different talents, abilities, and goals. I stay current with the new theories in coaching endurance and sprint athletes as well as use software such as WKO4 to help evaluate fitness and increase power.

I am very good at helping athletes achieve their cycling goals. I have seen & worked w/ coaches that didn’t understand what came easy for them was not easy for others.
