2. Get inspiration for rides and share your routes
BikeRadar Training members have currently uploaded more than 1,800 routes from across the globe. Are you in need of inspiration for your next ride, or thinking of exploring a new area? Simply find out what routes other members recommend.
3. Find cycling events going on near you
On BikeRadar Training, we also have an events calendar full of listings to suit all abilities and disciplines. You can find events near you by using the map search, or look up rides you know the name of in the search bar.
Once you’ve found an event of interest, you can see which other BikeRadar Training members are attending and find out more important information. Also, if you have a BikeRadar Training profile you can mark the event in your training diary and plan your workout schedule to get ready.
4. Professionally tailored training plans
All our training plans are exclusively designed for us by cycling experts. We have a selection of plans to suit all riders, both novice and intermediate, and ranging from road racing, time trialling and sportives to mountain biking.
5. Track progress with your training diary
Want to enter a sportive or an enduro event this year? Set it as one of your goals in your training diary. If it’s too much in one go, you can break it down into smaller targets and set dates to achieve each one.
The site also allows you to retain a permanent record of all your personal bests. Keep track of miles covered, time spent training, number of sessions completed and average speeds and you’ll see how your fitness is improving over the weeks, months and years.
