Beginners Sportive Training Plan

Whether you've signed up to your first sportive and have no idea how to start training, or you're looking to regain endurance after a stint off the bike, the beginners sportive plan is perfect for you. The plan has been designed by our Sport Scientist Eddie Fletcher to help those who are new to sportives complete their first competition with confidence.

The plan is 16 weeks in length and features two to four sessions per week of varying duration, perfect for the time crunched cyclist. You'll also have an alternate road session for some Wattbike sessions, so you can enjoy time out on the road, whilst still maintaining your plan.
