Cycle Coaching & Training Plans | North Cycling Performance™
North's philosophy is rooted in the understanding that cyclists must create a synergy between the demands of the event and their physiology if they are to reach peak performance. As our cycling coaching team has an abundance of experience in power-based coaching, we perform a comprehensive analysis of each athlete when they join us. We compare these results to what the athlete's race event expects from them physiologically using advanced cycling software from TrainingPeaks, WKO5, and our very own cycling physiology lab. Our purpose is to create response-driven training strategies for cyclists so that they can successfully compete at their desired event.
At North Cycling Performance, we understand the benefits of cycle coaching. Working with one of our experienced cycling coaches provides many advantages, such as personalised training plans tailored to your goals, access to state-of-the-art tools and resources to track your progress, and the accountability of having expert guidance and support every step of the way.

Cycle coaching questions answered
Answer: Many cyclists find that having a cycling coach is worth the investment, as their coaching skills and individualised advice can help you get to your fitness goals faster than if you were training on your own.

They provide detailed and tailored instruction on the fundamentals of cycling technique, conditioning, nutrition, tactics, mental preparation, and recovery. They also monitor their client's progress regularly and work to create an environment for growth.
How do I make my own cycling training plan?
Answer: Making your own cycling training plan requires a basic understanding of fitness principles and your own goals as an athlete. You will need to assess your current fitness level, identify specific elements that you want to improve, such as power output or endurance levels, then structure your plan around that goal. Additionally, you'll want to pay attention to rest periods and consider other activities that aid in recovery and prevent injury.
Answer: Creating an effective and customised cycling training plan is essential for reaching your fitness goals. Start by evaluating your current fitness level and creating realistic targets. From there, you can create a more detailed plan, with specific workouts for each day of the week that are designed to improve your strength, power and endurance. Finally, track your progress as you work towards achieving your goals.
Answer: This will vary depending on your level of experience, the type of cycling you’re doing and your goals. Generally speaking, beginners should aim for two to three days a week, while more experienced riders may do four or five days. Multiple shorter sessions can be just as effective as one long ride.
