This is a 16 week plan designed for those riders with a goal of being competitive at the Gran Fondo discipline. It will take you through every phase from establishing a solid base, building up your endurance, as well as working on your top end speed. To take full advantage of this plan you'll need to have ample experience completing longer endurance road rides. You'll also need access to a heart rate monitor or power meter to carry out the of the workouts and long rides.
As you build your base fitness and extend your training rides you'll be working towards a goal of riding over 100 miles and finishing at the front of the pack. This plan includes at least 1 day off (Monday), as well as strength training, some interval work, tempo rides, and long rides on the weekends.
