The aim of my 6-week training program is to get you started in cycling in the right way. The program will help you develop your base fitness as well as focusing on your pedal efficiency. By the end of this 6-week starter plan you will be riding in a relaxed and effective way and be confident to go to the next level.
Most people learn to ride a bike at a young age but what we aim to do in this starter plan is build your confidence by showing you how to ride in an efficient way so all your power is delivered to the pedal, whilst remaining relaxed on the bike.
Most of the mid-week sessions are no more than 90 minutes long which means you can do in the evenings or on the home trainer. Once you have completed the 6-weeks plan you should be able to confidently complete 50 miles without any trouble and you should be ready to progress to the Bryan Steel community program.
Alongside your 6-week training plan I have put together some tips and advice to make sure you are as ready as you can be for your event or cycling challenge, but more importantly, you have a challenging but enjoyable experience.
The essential guide will just you the right level of support to start riding a bike with setting up you position, what you should take with you and some advice on your first training session.
The guide also gives you some tips for before and after your session so you are ready to training and how to best recover for your next session.
With my partners and supporters, we will make sure you have the right fitness level, skill level, equipment and support to make sure you remain challenged but at the same time supported to ensure you have an amazing time. The essential guides will support you in the following areas:
- Bike and equipment
- Riding position setup
- Riding advice
- Training plan (supplied separately according to your needs)
- Advice for the ride:
- How to get ready the day before
- How to get your bike ready
- What to do on the day.
Each month we have a group ride where we meet for a coffee before we head out for a ride and on upon our return, enjoy a coffee as we reflect and talk about what will be an enjoyable ride.
On each group ride we have a structure of bronze, silver and gold groups with 3 routes designed to suit everyone’s abilities. Each group has a trained rider leader so there will be support for riders of all levels.
All the riders leave together and after a set point the bronze leader returns with their riders to head towards home and a little later in the ride the silver leader does the same before the gold riders head off to complete the longer route.
During the ride there will be always a rider at the front setting the right pace, one at the back making sure we stay together and for the first part a rider floating around helping riders but we also have an extra lead rider so we are able to help riders of all levels during the ride.
We try to make sure that all groups arrive back at around the same time, so everyone is able to socialise after the ride. This means everyone one has a great ride to their level but has the opportunity to progress to the next level and if they are feeling good or having an off day, they are able to ride in the right group for them on the day.
The most common question we get about these rides is what is the average speed – we say the leader of each group will go the speed of the group and we have the golden rule of if the riders behind are not talking then we are going to fast as this ride is for all levels and social.
Each fortnight we send out a short newsletter and let you know what is happening at Bryan Steel as well as giving you the latest developments to help you on your cycling journey.
Each fortnight we will tell you about the events and training of the previous week plus what is coming up the following week so you may be able to join us. We will also tell you about other people’s journey along with the latest tips and advice to help your cycling.
We will also tell you about out latest partners and the special offers they are offering as being part of Bryan Steel membership.
