How BaseCamp Works

The RPI BaseCamp training program is open to all RPI participants, regardless of whether you're doing RPI Sun Valley or Sun Valley Remote. The training plan begins July 5, and we recommend signing up as soon as possible. Here are the two simple steps to getting started:

  1. Sign up for RPI BaseCamp.

  2. If you don't have a TrainingPeaks account, create one for free here.

​ We'll start setting up for the training around the middle of June. Here is what you can expect at that time:

  1. We will email you a questionnaire to complete. This will tell us about your current fitness and your available time to train, which will help us know how to customize your training plan.

  2. We will email you a link to connect your TrainingPeaks account to ours so that we can load your workouts directly to your TrainingPeaks calendar.

  3. We will also email you a link to join the private Facebook group to begin getting to know your fellow RPI participants.

  4. Based on your answers to the training questionnaire, we will apply your training plan to your TrainingPeaks calendar near the end of June.

  5. Coach Tim Cusick and Rebecca Rusch will kick off the training with a live webinar to make sure everyone is set up and ready to go, and to answer any questions.

​ Then the real fun begins: the training itself! Simply follow the training plan, ask questions in the Facebook group, and watch your fitness grow as you do the work. We'll be sharing lots of education and training tips in the Facebook group, by email, on our blog, and in our webinars, so be prepared to finish the program with lots of new tools and expertise.

What You'll Need to Participate

Here's a list of things you'll need for RPI BaseCamp: ​

  • A bike

  • A TrainingPeaks account (a free basic account works just fine)

  • An active Facebook account if you'd like to participate in our private group

  • A free Zoom account if you'd like to join our webinars (the recordings will be available afterward if you cannot attend live)

  • A power meter or heart rate monitor (the training plans are power based for maximal gains, and we highly recommend training with power to make the most of your program, but the workouts are easily adjusted for heart rate data for anyone who does not have a power meter)
