The system is based on a detailed individual assessment through the self-evaluation test called the Critical Power self-evaluation test. It requires the user to enter their personal goals: the start and end of the cycling season, how many hours per week they can dedicate to training, on which days and how many hours per day.
Based on this information, Bike Personal Coach defines training macrocycles and the training load for each cycling quality to be trained, continuously alternating between training and recovery. At the end of the first macrocycle, another self-test is required before the second macrocycle is provided and so on, accompanying the athlete in their continuous athletic development.
