This plan will get you ready for the repeated nature of smaller hills interspersed with some longer climbs. Be prepared to do climb after climb and feel strong at the end! This plan is made specifically for the Highlands, Golden, and Maryland Gran Fondos.
This plan is for the beginner cyclist with 10-12 hours to train each week.
It is made to progressively work all the energy systems so that you'll be able to survive the distance with endurance, get over the hills and climbs along the way.
