Silver Plan

When you subscribe to the Dartmoor Classic Training Program "Silver Plan" you will receive a Start Guide that gives you all the information you need to prepare for your training sessions. This guide includes instructions on how to complete an assessment of your current level of cycling fitness. For those with Heart Rate Monitors and/or Power Meters, there are instructions on how to complete an FTP (Functional Threshold Power) Test and calculate your personal Training Zones. You will then be able to train more accurately as you monitor the intensity of your training. For those who do not have these gadgets, there are instructions on how to assess the intensity of your training using a methodology known as RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion).

You will also receive a free Training Peaks account. This is an online training program through which your training schedule will be delivered. Training Peaks will also send you daily reminders for each planned session. Once you have completed a training session, you will update your Training Peaks account, creating a record of your progress. Training Peaks is rich with data analysis features enabling your training to be accurately monitored. With the "Silver Plan" you will have the benefit of a professional coach reviewing your training results every four weeks and providing you with feedback to help you through the next four week training block.

Before you start your sixteen weeks of training, an approved British Cycling Level 3 Coach will contact you to discuss your training requirements. They will ask you about your lifestyle to establish what training time you have available and identify any other commitments you have. They will discuss your strengths and weaknesses and establish your personal goals. Once they have the information they need, they will write a personalized training plan for you.The plan will take into account the demands of the Dartmoor Classic route you have entered alongside your personal circumstances. At the end of each four week training block your coach will review your training with you and give guidance for the next phase.

If you would like more frequent input from a training coach, please consider the "Gold Plan" option.

The cost for the Silver Plan is £80.00, which equates to just £5.00 per week.
