Training Programs

Our 16-week training programs are created by Dr. Stephen Lane from HPTek. Stephen is an 8 hour wave leader for Team Bicycle Network and is dedicated to helping you reach your goals – whether that’s completing your first Peaks Challenge or going faster than before.

Our training programs kicked off on Monday 16 November.

Stephen will be sharing regular videos to run through the upcoming elements of the training programs and give you a better understanding of what is needed to achieve your goal on the bike.
