Sportive Training Plans - 100 & 50 miles

50 MILE SPORTIVE TRAINING PLAN

Whether you are aiming to complete your first sportive, achieve a particular time, or need professional guidance on how to train for a 50 mile bike ride, Wattbike’s 50 mile bike ride training plan will help you achieve your goal.  

The 50-mile sportive plan uses a polarised training model which incorporates a strength, threshold and endurance phase designed to progress your fitness and cycling training. Your training workload will progress by roughly 11% week on week throughout this 50 mile cycle training plan, increasing in intensity and duration as you progress. The biggest training load will come in week 10 before a 2-week taper, which will allow you to recover and maintain fitness ready for your event. 

Wattbike’s 50 mile cycle training plan is developed by professionals and cycling coaches, with a schedule that provides intense yet balanced training, ensuring you conquer endurance events.
