This 2 hour session is designed to help you put together your own structured training plan for your upcoming events. For example a plan for completing the Fred Whitton Round, or a PB in a 25 minute time trail, or a GB qualification for the European Championship.
We will cover the four phases of the training process, base phase, build phase, peak phase and tapering and how you can plan each of these phases.
The process involves identifying;
Your goals and objectives for the season.
Your strengths and weaknesses.
Your previous successes and any barriers to you achieving your goals.
One of the big concepts we will consider with you is the process of adaptation and the need for suitable rest and recuperation in order to further progress so that you can put together your own plan and arrive at your event ready to achieve your goal.
If you are starting to question if you are really putting your energy to best use in your pedaling style, this 1 hour session will start to answer that doubt.
The modern way of pedalling is moving to a faster cadence from sound science, and strong professional results. Cadence is only one element to becoming more efficient, and must be matched with smooth application of force through the pedals.
This course is best done if you are happy with your bike fit, and can already sustain a still upper body when pedaling hard. We will be ironing out the peaks and troughs in your application of force, and work on smoothly adjusting your cadence as we adapt to inclines, and gear shifts.
We focus on maintaining constant velocity at the crank spindle, and engaging the large muscle groups for more of the pedal stroke.
This session is for a maximum of 5 people, and will be reasonably energetic. We will be using our gears and analysing data on screens as we ride.
We don't cover Left/Right balance in this session. This marginal gain is something we offer in private coaching using the Garmin Cycling Dynamics and Vector 2 Pedal system.
This coached session is not included under the membership offer.

You have your FTP score, we send you all the data, but what now? How can you use this data to inform your training plan? This session guides you through the stats to help you train more effectively, and choose what kind of training load and intensity you need to reach your goals. We introduce concepts of lots of the cycling acronyms, including NP, TSS, IF, CTL, and how you can keep a track of them in the TrainingPeaks application.
This is a classroom session. You will find it more useful if you have some of your own stats to hand. Either the emails we send you, or your TrainingPeaks app.View full product details
