    Hi Lynda,
    I’m aiming to be ready to ride a 700 mile mostly off-road tour beginning May 19, 2019 (Cross-Washington Mountain Bike Route). It’s a race for most people, but I will be in tour mode. It’s a challenging course, I have up to 14 days to do it but hope to move faster than that.
    I’m currently in week 5 of the Master’s 40+ Base Plan and will be finished with it around the 3rd week of March.
    Please recommend a plan to follow from the end of the Base Plan until the ride begins May 19th.
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Steve,

    The Cross-Washington Mountain Bike Route looks amazing!

    When you finish the Master’s 40+ Base Plan on March 24th I recommend you progress on to our 12-week 5 – 10 day Bikepacking Race Mountain Bike Training Plan. You will 8 weeks to your event. I recommend staring this plan at week #5 and following it to week 12 and a peak at XWA.
