1. PLAN AN EVENT FOR 2021
Having something “big” to work towards is a massive motivator and keeps you focused on your training. So this weekend start researching events you would like to do next year that will challenge your current cycling ability and have a local back up plan in case Covid gets in the way again.
2. ROPE IN YOUR MATES
Riding outdoors in miserable weather can be soul destroying on your own. Find a group of cycling mates who will keep your spirits up when the weather turns wet and who wont mind helping fix a puncture when it’s minus 2 outside. Try find riders of similar ability as it’s harder to be patient and ride slower when it’s cold out.
3. ADD IN OTHER TRAINING ELEMENTS
Winter is the perfect time to add some off bike strength and conditioning work into your weekly training plan. Adding variety will help keep you engaged whilst also improving your strength, flexibility and balance on the bike. Don’t know where to start? Why not check out one of our online 30 day programmes.
