Bike packing event (12-week plan)
This plan is designed to help you develop the fitness to complete a multi-day bike packing event. This plan is less strenuous than our level 2 plan but still requires you to have been cycling regularly and/or have a strong cycling background before starting out. The plan can be used for either road, gravel or mountain bike events. If you are unsure of whether the plan is for you then get in touch and we will help you decide.
As a guide: before starting this plan you should have a good background in cycling and have completed a minimum of several one day rides further than 120km (75 miles) on road or gravel tracks and/or 60km (40 miles) rides on mountain bike terrain.
The plan is based on a gradual increase in volume and intensity that builds with your fitness. Higher intensity sessions are planned during weekdays, to make effective use of the often limited available training time during the working week. Weekends are used to build endurance and volume as well as practice riding and logistical skills.
By purchasing the plan you will also become a member of our Endurance Group, which entitles you to many resources including discussion forums where you can ask any questions you may have of our coaching team. The resource means you will be supported throughout your journey to your goal. Membership of the group continues beyond completion of the plan and also provides many discounts and associated benefits, such as discounts on one to one consultations.
In particular, you will be entitled to 60% discount on a one to one session with one of our coaches during the first two weeks of your plan, something we hope you will take advantage of to really get your training off to a great start.
