Congrats to Kelsey at the Battle of Townsend Ridge!
Have you ever wanted to do a century ride? Preparation is the key to being able to get there. The Big Dam Bridge 100 mile ride is coming up September 23rd and it will be a great ride to do. There are several pieces that go into a training program: Distance Training, Strength Training, and Nutrition are a few of the important pieces of the puzzle. We will go deep into some of these pieces along the way to help you prepare for the big day. But first, we wanted to put out a basic training plan that can help everyone get ready. This training plan will officially begin July 3rd. Feel free to use this or create your own!
