You’re working hard to get ready to gear up to give back and we want to help!

On this page, you’ll find an 8-week training plan for the PedalFest 50K and a 12-week training plan for the PedalFest 100K. Please note, these are not certified training programs, but merely guides to get you ready for the ride.

Have you been looking to challenge yourself by riding in a 100K, but not sure how or where to start? PedalFest and Bike Walk Wichita are partnering up to get you ready for your first 100K ride! Bike Walk Wichita has created a custom 9-week 100K training ride program just for you with your gran fondo debut being the 100K at PedalFest!

This is a beginner to intermediate training program, so you can get some miles under your belt gradually. The program will start with short-distance rides and build up to longer rides. The group will meet once a week, but you will be provided with tools and guides to continue your training throughout each week.

Training Sessions Dates: Saturday, June 25-Saturday, August 20 (PedalFest!)**

**Registration for the training will close Sunday, July 3.

Registration Fee: During your PedalFest registration, add on the training ride to your shopping cart for only $25 each rider! (The training is $39 for those not registering through the PedalFest website).
