You will notice that each training session contains a color and terrain of difficulty. The green color indicates that you can cycle in a moderate way. Familiarize yourself first with this new sporting activity. The orange color means that you are passing a course and the level is hardening. You go faster and you become less and less tired during your sessions. Finally, the red level indicates that you are on the last steps of this plan. And of course the last steps are always the hardest. The level becomes more difficult and you do more training sessions. You are faster and travel longer distances. Keep in mind that during the majority of the sessions you should be working at a comfortable pace, but at certain times in the plan, it will push you harder for short sessions.
The terrains are changing too. Check well that you are using the right training paths. “Flat terrain” means that you can only practice on a flat surface without too much inclination. The “Steep Terrain” tells you that you have to train on progressive incline roads. Finally, when you see “Intensive” the training will be shorter but it will mix flat terrain and steep terrain. In addition, the pace should be faster with sustained acceleration phases.
- WEEK 1: Start your first week and try your bike position but also check if your body is ok with this new sport. If you feel muscle pain, it means that you don’t have the right position or that you are going to fast. For this first week, ride at a normal speed doesn’t go too fast and start familiarizing with the sport.
- WEEK 2: Take into account the problems of the first week and be sure that these little problems are regulated. Do not forget to re-check your equipment.

You’ll alternate between flat terrain and steep terrain this week so make sure to hold on! Check your equipment and think about your diet. Do not be discouraged and continue like this!
- WEEK 6: You are going for the second time to do a long-distance week followed by a harder and longer steep terrain! Remember to maintain a good position during your workouts and release your muscles well after exercise. Increase the number of calories and protein you eat each day.
