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 to help meet the needs of all our customers.

These training plans are your gateway to the readiness needed to start your Pedal Britain cycling tour and have been used by a number of clients already:
Clive Hawkins (LEJOG 2021) has been using Grant's services and has provided this fantastic endorsement:
"I have been using Grant as coach since late September and am very happy with his service: friendly, approachable, knowledgeable and great value for money. It's giving me the confidence that I'll turn up at Lands End as best prepared as I can be, especially given my limited cycling experience before last year."
