Frequently Asked Questions
What equipment do I need for the membership? You don't actually need any specific equipment except for a bicycle. Absolutely no need to have a power meter. You can train using perceived effort, heart rate or power. These are all training intensity prescriptions and you will learn how to use them in your training plan.
It is handy for your workouts and development to have at least a heart rate monitor and/or a power meter. A cadence sensor is also a nice to have but not necessary.
What types of events do are your training plans for? We are able to train you for events or fitness. Examples of goals you can use the training plans for include;
- Cycling touring plans that you can use to train for your monumental or Hors Cat climbs like the Stelvio and Alpe d'Huez - and the rest of your trip.
- Big rides like Amy's ride and the qualifier, MS Gong ride, etc.
- All Gran Fondos and Sportives around the world - including the Haute Route!
- All types of road racing, from criteriums to Time Trials and multi-day events.
Does it matter what age I am? Do you have specific programs for over 50s? The plans work for all age groups including 50+ riders.
Can you help me even if I am a beginner? We can help you even if you’ve only been training for racing for a few months - or even brand new to cycling.
I don't have a lot of time to train, will this still work for me? Our plans are designed to help you maximise your fitness in the available time you have to train. Most of our sessions are no more than an hour during the week so if you only have up to 1 hour 3 times per week, this will work perfectly.
Once I sign up, is my training plan customised to allow for personal requirements? You will learn how to take your entire life circumstances into consideration and base your program on your assessments, background, short- and long-term goals, current volume, current workload, age, sport ages, performance disparities, and much more.
Do I have to start as soon as I sign up? You don’t have to start training right away, you can delay the start of your training.
Can I use this training with my indoor trainer? We provide trainer files for every workout. You don’t even need a smart trainer, you can use any trainer to do our programs. If you have a smart trainer you can upload the workouts to TrainerRoad, Zwift or any other indoor training software and Garmin Wahoo head unit computers.
What currency is the price in? The price is in USD. If you are not from the US there is no issues as you will you will be billed in USD. Your payment will be based on the exchange rate at the time your payment is processed on your credit card regardless of which country you are joining from. The process is seamless so you don’t have to have US dollars to join. We use a ‘shopping cart’ to securely process our online payment so it’s all secure.
What's the deal with your pricing? Get lifetime access to the Beginner ROAD Program - one price for life. It’s as easy as that.
How Long Does The Program Last?The program has no designated start/end time – this isn’t your typical “6” or “12” week program. After purchase, you have lifetime access to the program and everything that comes with it – it’s designed such that you have all the tools available and laid out for you such that you have years’ worth of training at your disposal.
But with that being said, you will see results quickly and you can expect to drastically change your cycling within 12 weeks of consistently using the program.
In addition, there are fitness goals listed within the program that you will constantly strive to reach and will signify that you’ve “graduated” from the course and are ready for what’s next.
