This plan is designed for those that are looking to push themselves to compete in a 100 mile mountain bike race. This 12 week plan is designed to help you gain the fitness and strength necessary to complete 100 miles on a mountain bike in a goal time of under 8 hours. You'll need to have ample experience riding off road, be comfortable riding in technical terrain, and have some experience completing long mountain bike races/rides.
Most weeks will consist of an off day on Monday, 5 days of riding, and 1 strength day. All of the long rides are on the weekends, with shorter interval and tempo rides being performed during the week. It's necessary to have access to a heart rate monitor or power meter to take full advantage of this training plan.
