2019 Training Plans and Rides


Get in top form so you can enjoy all the challenges and rewards when we come together to end cancer. We’re here to guide your training so you can feel great on November 16. For those running or walking the 5K, riding 25-miles, or choosing the ultimate challenge of The Century 100-miler, we have a plan that you can use to help you prepare to for Padres Pedal the Cause 2019!

Pick Your Plan

The training plans below provide an easy way for you to structure your time and training to prepare to run 3.4 miles or ride 25, 55, 88, or 100 miles. The long ride distances are based on the concept of gradual progression and recovery.  In addition to a weekly long ride, we suggest other ways to prepare, including additional rides or stationary bike classes one to two times per week. You may also consider practicing inclines, as many of our routes involve hills, and all routes ride over the iconic Coronado Bridge.


If you have any questions regarding the above training plans or training in general, ask us at training@gopedal.org.


We host four group training rides for riders of all skill levels to help you build your ability and comfort on the road. All rides are supported with ride leaders, detailed maps, mechanical support and refueling stations. Come on out and be part of the Padres Pedal community!
