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

Tour of Colorado: Fountain-Roubaix 66 mile Thrive Plan


This plan is for the rider that has ridden in a gravel ride before and also normally rides around 50-60 miles as their long ride. This plan is made for an intermediate cyclist that wants to crush the 66 mile ride and needs a simple and effective training plan that helps them ride hard and finish strong with bragging rights at the finish line. This rider has between 7-10 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. 

Sample Workout:


WU: 10 Minutes working into your Endurance zone (Power Z2, HR Z2, RPE 2-3). Then complete 3 x 1-minute fast pedals, with 1 minute rest between efforts, to open up your legs.
MS: Building Endurance today! Once warmed up, ride in your Endurance zone (Power Z2, HR Z2, RPE 2-3) over flat to rolling terrain. Focus on staying relaxed on the bike and spinning circles while keeping your cadence between 90-100. During the last hour of the ride complete 1 x 30-minute TEMPO effort (Power Z3, HR Z3, RPE 3-4) using a gear that results in a cadence of 75-85. Complete the TEMPO effort as close to the end of the ride as possible while still allowing 10 minutes for cool-down.
CD: 10 minutes of easy spinning.
