Training

Well hello! Awesome of you to have a look around. We are here to help you get started with your (first) workout or training plan. This is a FAQ, which offers some of the basic questions to help you find a suitable workout or plan. 

All workouts are build on training zones. This can be either power (watt) of heart rate (beats per minute), speed or feeling (only for starters). These are called units. Between the different units and sports the zone distribution is not equal. 

Each zone is based on your functional threshold. From this threshold you can calculate your personal zones. You can set them in your training device or if you go for a training plan in Trainingpeaks.

Note: For each device there is a different place to setup the zones. In many occasions you can do so in the app of the brand and push this to your device.

Workouts

Workouts are the basic building blocks of sports. You can do each workout individually or build a plan with them. These are the questions about single workouts. 

The most important part of training is to have fun. Secondly it can help you maintain or build your endurance, stamina and fitness. With these two, in this specific order in mind we build each workout. We design and do everything with you in mind. If we have the slightest doubt about the fun factor or benefit of a workout we design and would not do the workout ourself, we get back to designing a better, more fun and functional version.

To get the most out of every workout and have the best time possible during an event it is best to get the possible following gear. 

  • Heart Rate Monitor
    This helps you training in specific zones. Especially for running a heart rate monitor is a must.
  • GPS Watch
    It is pretty hard to find a watch without GPS nowadays. It really helps you to measure your output during each run. 
  • Power Meter
    With a power meter for cycling (running is not yet accurate enough) you can measure your output really accurate. Combined with heart rate it will tell you your progress nicely.

Within our workout range you can chose from a variaty of workouts. You can sort them on you favorite sport, current level or future goal. Within these options you can filter the workouts on duration to suit your needs time wise. 

We advice you to pick a workout that suits your current level best. From here you can decide what you like to do. 

Once you found a suitable workout you can sign in or up to download your workout file. Combine with your training gear and connection app you can sync the downloaded workout file to your device and you are set to go!

Note: Every brand has their own way of syncing and it is impossible for us to keep up with every possible way they have setup this process. Find you brands website to find out how to get your workout file onto your personal device.

Every workout, single or in a full training plan, is designed by certified trainers and keep you as athlete in mind. 

The workouts are build with a 3 basic blocks.  These basic blocks are present in every training and can be combined with other blocks.

  • Warm Up
    This block helps you to get your body into training mode. Easy riding, low in power or heart rate.
  • Core
    This is the main block and can consist out of one or multiple sets. If multiple sets are in the core, there is always an active part in higher power or heart rate zones. 
  • Cool Down
    The cool down is in the lower heart rate or power zones. This part of the training helps your body to get back to a more comfortable body state and is the start of your recovery from the core block you just finished.


Other examples of blocks present in your workouts might be: Pre Warm Up, Activation, Technique, Recovery, Post Cool Down and more.

Get dressed, grab a coffee and head out. Enjoy!!

TRAINING PLANS

When single workout are put together you get a training plan. Within the plan there is a combination of various workouts to help you get the best training result.

The most important part of training is to have fun. Secondly it can help you maintain or build your endurance, stamina and fitness. With these two, in this specific order in mind we build plans, workouts. We design and do everything with you in mind. If we have the slightest doubt about the fun factor of a workout we design and would not do the workout ourself we get back to designing a better, more fun and functional version.

Like for workouts there is some gear that would really help you to get more out of your training plan. 

  • Heart Rate Monitor
    This helps you training in specific zones. Especially for running a heart rate monitor is a must.
  • GPS Watch
    It is pretty hard to find a watch without GPS nowadays. It really helps you to measure your output during each run. 
  • Power Meter
    With a power meter for cycling (running is not yet accurate enough) you can measure your output really accurate. Combined with heart rate it will tell you your progress nicely.

A full plan with planned weeks and structured workouts. Pick a plan that suits your level and the your current number training days. This will prevent you from overreaching, as we have seen that a plan brings structure to your weeks. Add to that that this will also mean training more and on a regular basis, which is already an overload for most athletes.

Once you have purchased the plan that suits your need to sign up at Training Peaks. After signing up you add us as your coach and we will hook you up with your training plan starting off at the next Monday. 

Note: Would you like to start right away you can purchase the same plan on the Trainingpeaks website too. However we offer you a discount for the delay there is between ordering and getting it into your personal calendar at Trianingpeaks.

With each plan there are several weeks of training. There are active weeks, recovery weeks and specialized weeks. Each will help you with the goal of your training plan. For the workouts in the plan we use the same blocks as in the single workouts.

We strongly advice you to stick to the workouts and their intensity. For most athletes the structured weeks already creates an overload and adding in more workouts or intensity increases the risk of getting injured. 

Get dressed, grab a coffee and head out. Enjoy!!

  • Ride time is set to a maximum of 2,5 hours
  • We plan rides together for a whole year at the start of the season
  • There is a fixed starting location with good coffee and a place to park your bike safely

  • A minimum of one group rides with 26-28km/h
  • Accessibility is guaranteed


Safety is our first priority

  • We ride away from hazards but all rides are at your own risk
  • You wear a helmet at all times (stops not included ;))
  • Your bike and all it’s parts (brakes, gears, etc) are well maintained
  • Registring is mandatory to keep track how rode with us and In Case of Emergency

A cycling community where you and I ride together. It is not about the strongest rider or the one with the most expansive bike. Cycling Espresso is about riding with one another in a social way with a no-drop policy.

Before you leave home to join one of our rides you should think of the following

  1. Is your bike in the best possible condition?
  2. Do you have your helmet on your head?
  3. Are you registered for the ride?

It really depends on the city and Cycling Espresso community. It can be a coffee or bicycle shop. As long as they make their coffee by hand on an espresso machine and you can park your bike safely. If this is the case it is the right place to depart. 

Find your community or start your own together with us?

Per community the departure times differ. The easiest way to find out is to look for your community. Isn’t there a Cycling Espresso Community near you? Then feel free to contact us to start one together.

You can always find the ride time in the event for which you register. The duration of an average Cycling Espresso club ride will be somewhere between 2 and 2,5 hours.

In de description of the event for which you registered you can always find the average pace we will ride together. This will be on average somewhere between 26 and 28 km/h. If there are multiple groups speed can vary between the groups. But even then, when someone is have difficulty keeping up we will adapt to his or her pace to keep the group together. If not, a little push in the back could help everybody to keep up.

Every Cycling Espresso ride is based on the principle that we stick together. During an average ride the distance is set to suit all in the group, which means it will be between 50 and 60 kilometers.

Safety is our first priority at Cycling Espresso. So if, for some reason, something happens on the road we always know who joined the ride. Besides that it is always fun to know who joined the rides, this is what connects us. In addition, we use registrations to keep track of our statistics. If you want to know exactly what happens with your data, you can find it here: privacy policy.
