We are pleased to announce that we have now added an 11 week hilly Cyclo Sportif program to our list of available training plans.
Cyclo sportif events are becoming extremely popular all around the world, with most featuring a range of climbing, from multiple small but steep climbs to long mountain passes.
Sportif events appeal to a large range of cyclists and we have created two training plans to cater for riders with different amounts of available riding time (8-10hrs and 10-16hrs per week).
The program starts with a 6 week base training phase that focuses on boosting your aerobic power and boosting your strength and muscular endurance - which is the key requirement to successfully completing a hilly sportif event. There is a 4 week build period with plenty of climbing and some race options for the riders who like to have regular hitouts. A final week is included with a mini taper before your sportif event.
The 11 week hilly sportif program can be purchased through the training plans page and costs just $65
