Training Resources

 

Always the most asked question each year, especially for those signed up for LEJOG is "How much training should I be doing?" 

Most companies will just issue you with a one size fits all 'standard' training plan and leave you to it. However our research showed that a high % of customers receiving these plans became even more anxious, opposed to motivated!!

So Pedal Britain has developed a range of training support resources and coaching packages to help meet the needs of all our customers.
