Now is the time to get fit for a week-long cycling vacation. Whether you're planning for a cycling vacation or organized tour, you'll want to be prepared so you can enjoy the trip. This plan will improve your fitness, strength, and endurance so you can spend more time in the saddle, enjoy the climbs, and recover quicker for the next day's adventure.

This 12-week plan is designed for beginner, intermediate, and expert cyclists with 6 to 12 hours a week to train. The plan consists of specific drills, workouts, and rides at various effort levels that will prepare you for your adventure. Weeks one, two, and three, focus on building up your aerobic capacity, while the forth is a critical rest week to prepare for the next block of training. Weeks five through seven will continue improving your aerobic capacity, while adding anaerobic activities, as well as neuromuscular power work to prepare for harder efforts. Week eight is another critical rest week, ahead of your last hard week. Weeks ten and eleven are easy weeks, to make sure you're fresh for your big adventure. Week twelve revisits anaerobic efforts early in the week and finishes with basic endurance efforts.
