Steps to the Best Spring Cycling Training Plan

No training plan is perfect, but here are some ways to make yours as good as possible.


  • The most difficult step in a spring cycling training plan is often just getting started.
  • The longer you put off that first ride, the less effective your plan will be.
  • There will never be a perfect time to start- so just start now!

Write it out

  • Writing goals down will help you remember and achieve them.
  • Write out specific parts of your plan, such as goals, dates, people you want to cycle with, and trips you want to go on.

Make it reasonable

  • Setting unreasonable goals may feel “ambitious,” but it’s really just unreasonable.
  • Make your goals simple and achievable, but make yourself work for them.
  • Failing to reach unreasonable goals will be demotivating and negatively affect your spring cycling training plan.

Use your resources

  • Use cycling forums, groups, and websites to get ideas and support.
  • Use cycling apps to make your rides more rewarding.
  • Make a playlist that you’ll enjoy listening to while cycling.

Get involved

  • Find a race to participate in and set a goal finish time.

Ride with friends

  • If your spring cycling training plan is feeling lonely, think about inviting a friend or family member to ride with you.
  • It can be more fun and effective if you have someone keeping you on track.
