Guidelines for how much, and what type of training riders should be doing
Use our club calendar to look what sessions are available, and the advice below. Discuss your training with club coaches:
U12s – upto 3 sessions per week.
Try as many disciplines as possible, as well as other sports.
U14s – 4 sessions per week.
Try 3 disciplines
U16s, Juniors and committed seniors – 5 sessions per week.
Try at least 2 disciplines, work on specific components of fitness on rollers or turbo.
Mix up the sessions you do:
- Track Session
- Road Rides
- Off-road riding
- Specific Drills
- Skills Session
Variety makes you a more complete rider and keeps things fun and interesting. You should practice weaknesses unless you have very specific racing requirements.
