300 miles of gravel on August 25-26. What plan(s) does FasCat recommend to prepare for this marathon gravel event? How many hours of riding for my longest days leading up to the event?
I’m working through 18 Weeks of Sweet Spot, SS Polarized & Gravel Grinder Intermediate leading up to Unbound 200. After a rest I’ll complete the Steamboat plan & ride the 100. The Long Voyage is the next weekend.
Should I scrap the Steamboat plan & use the 11 weeks between Unbound & LV for some other FasCat plan? I’m going to take advantage of the CO altitude, mountains & extensive gravel roads for my preparation.
I did Gravel Worlds Long Voyage last year and i think i’ll do it a again this year.
I’m sure whatever plan they give you will work great, but i’d suggest adding in a training camp week or two if you can.
Last year to prepare for the long voyage twice i took a week off work and got in some big milage weeks. I think those helped a lot.
If you have any questions specific to Gravel Worlds Long Voyage I might be able to help, I live near there and ride those roads a lot.
