Make it progressive

Your cycling training should be structured around
a series of small increments in intensity and volume.
For this to work, you’re going to need to keep track of
your fitness and skills, and adjust your training
accordingly over time. This is how sustainable
improvements happen.

Set checkpoints for yourself

Setting time-specific checkpoints for yourself is
a good way to stay motivated and consistent.
But for this to work, you’re going to have to make
sure that the checkpoints correspond to your
abilities and fitness level.

Be realistic

So you want to cycle more and complete your first event?
Great! But be realistic about it, don’t expect to be riding 3-day
stage races by March. Doing this will only discourage you
and could lead to disappointment.

Start the year with the right bike set-up for optimal comfort and maximum control.
