The Winter Training Plan

Winter is a difficult time for cyclists. Whilst we would all love to be out riding on the roads, with the deteriorating weather and nights drawing in it’s often difficult to get out. That's why our Sport Scientist Eddie Fletcher has crafted a winter training plan - specifically for cyclists - which helps you keep your form and fitness across the coldest and darkest winter months. 

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

Below is a snippet of week one of the Winter Training Plan, to access the plan in full, simply enter your details below:
