Training Plans

Get Ready For the Big Day

Well done! You’ve made the decision to take part in the Annual Mayo Pink Ribbon Charity Cycle. Whether you are an experienced cyclist or a total beginner you will need to be prepared fro the distance you have chosen to complete. All the routes are manageable with the right preparation and training. In order to make things as easy as possible we have asked our friends in Castlebar Cycling Club to develop training plans for each distance. We have plans to suit those who have plenty of time to get ready and we have plans for those who tend to leave things to the last minute!
