Tour of Colorado:Fountain-Roubaix 8 Week Plan - Survive 66 miles

Tour of Colorado: Fountain-Roubaix – 66 mile Survive Plan


This plan is for the rider that has ridden in a gravel ride before and also normally rides around 40-50 miles as their long ride. This plan is made for an intermediate cyclist that wants to challenge themselves with the 66 mile ride and needs a simple and effective training plan that helps them survive and finish the ride. This rider has between 6-9 hours a week to train, can get out for 2+ hours on one of the weekend days and is excited to improve with some focused workouts. This plan is written in wattage, heart rate and RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion), so any level of cyclist technophobe can use it. If you are using a power meter or smart trainer, this plan DOES include structured workouts that you can download daily from TrainingPeaks. Written by famed cycling coach, Hunter Allen, these plans are developed and designed using Hunter’s latest workouts that he uses with his personal coaching clients.
