Proper training before a multi-day tour or a Century ride can make your day or days much more enjoyable. If you’re riding in Wyoming, train for wind and hilly terrain. The best way to prepare is to train in the wind and on hills. Train at elevation if your riding event will be at elevation – as most Wyoming rides are.
The basic approach to training is to have at least one long ride a week and to continually increase the distance of the ride. Interval training as well has hill training on other days can help improve your speed.
To meet your Tour de Wyoming or Century goal, follow either of the training schedules below. The first is geared towards beginners who wish to complete 100 miles in one day for the first time. The second is more strenuous and is geared toward veteran riders wishing to improve their Century ride time. Monday rides are done at an easy riding pace; Thursday rides are done at a brisk pace or with intervals; the remaining rides are done at your long-distance riding pace. Increase distance and intensity to improve your Century ride time.
