RIDE 66: Make cycling your daily habit
Ride 66 is our cohort-based course that gets you in the flow and makes cycling a daily habit.
Unlike other coaching programs, you won't just be prescribed a training plan – you'll grow as an avid rider, create your own workouts that fit 100% into your daily schedule, build global friendships, and gain a new perspective on what's possible in life.
why you should join ride 66 ?
Have you always wanted to develop your cycling habit, but dropped out at some point?
Are you overwhelmed with the intensity of your training plans, frustrated by having to manage competing priorities, and conflicting strategies out there for cycling?
Have you participated in coaching programs, but now feel stuck?
Are you hacking away at training rounds, counting hours on the saddle, or not progressing fast enough?
Do you have plenty of ideas around cycling, but struggle to find the right people around you?
Do you find yourself screening the race or bike adventure lists, and never actually putting your plans into practice?
The constraints you need to overcome to finally get into the flow
All keen cyclists face the same 10 problems:
If you're reading this, chances are one (or more) of these problems are keeping you up at night (and keeping you from riding every day).
And chances are, you know you should be cycling differently – which is why you're on this page in the first place.
Whether it's to improve your mental and physical health, finish the next bike marathon with grace, or help you bring your life in balance, cycling is something that's been on your list for a while
THE ACCOUNTABILITY YOU’VE BEEN MISSING
Maybe you've tried cycling coaching programs before. But, time and time again, you fall off. Something comes up. What starts off exciting becomes too difficult. And before you know it, you're back to square one.
This is because there was no accountability.
You tried to start cycling on your own, almost doomed from the beginning.
But Ride 66 solves that problem. You join a group of other cyclists, all with the same goal as you: to get inspired by cycling and to improve continuously, without being under pressure to just fulfil a plan that someone else prescribed for you.
This creates accountability, unlike anything you've ever experienced.
DEMOLISH YOUR BAD CYCLING HABITS
So many talented cyclists think success is about spending endless hours in the saddle. They see pain as the indicator for success. It’s not. We have learned that we want that balance where an activity is testing us. Where success feels possible but not guaranteed. Which means not over-ambitioned, but being 100% focused and immersed in the process of cycling.
As soon as you skip a day of cycling, it becomes easier the next day to skip again. Skip enough days in a row, and you’ll forget you ever had a daily cycling habit in the first place. Getting started (or started “again”) is the HARDEST part for cyclists.
Have you ever been driven by personal fears and competition so much, you started to hate cycling? This is one of the most common challenges among hobby cyclists (and other endurance athletes). They, while training on their own, develop so many thoughts about what can go wrong, they cannot enjoy the race or the big adventure they trained for.
Stop cycling into the void
The biggest mistake keen cyclists make?
Training for weeks and months into the void. In the beginning, you think you know what you want to ride for, and you think you know how to reach your goal.
But newsflash: you don't. With this assumption, novice cyclists get caught in a sloth-like feedback loop that makes purposeful cycling impossible.
Instead, in your training, you want to get as CLOSE as possible to the real event that you train for, to already FEEL the event itself.
By completing enough rides in a row, you will know exactly WHY you train and WHAT you train FOR.
And by leveraging platform algorithms like our energetics tool, you get immediate feedback on your cycling.
Complete 66 flow rides in 66 days
Starting to ride once a week is the worst thing you can do if you want to get into the flow.
Just sitting on a bike for a few hours because you think structured training is for the pros only?
No thanks. Instead, you should start with small units every day.
Short, single workouts that can be completed in less than one hour – ideally on a route that you take anyway, e.g. as part of your morning routine, on your way to work, or substituting a walk during your lunch break.
And instead of riding weekly, you should get on the bike every single day – ideally, without spending additional time – for 66 days.
During Ride 66, you’ll develop 66 short and joyful workouts that make your new daily routine.
You wonder why 66 days?
Well, there’s some research behind this. Phillippa Lally is a health psychology researcher at University College London.
In a study published in the European Journal of Social Psychology, Lally and her research team figured out just how long it actually takes to form a habit.
The answer? On average, it takes more than 2 months before a new behaviour becomes automatic — 66 days to be exact.

Here Is How It Works
Learn The Fundamentals Of Flow Cycling
On the surface, Ride 66 is a group coaching program helping you to create a cycling routine to master your cycling goals with ease.
Upon joining, you'll unlock a monthly curriculum packed with frameworks that guarantee you become a prolific cyclist.
Weekly Live Sessions covering everything you need to know when it comes to cycling, and to build the Ride 66 community
The foundation of Ride 66 – our 60-minute live sessions, including Q&A sessions to cover all your questions. These aren't your normal boring Zoom calls.
These are immersive learning experiences you will be thrilled to attend.
We pack many golden nuggets of cycling into these sessions, including guests that are international experts in their fields. Successful cyclists, leading yogi and therapists, flow experts – you'll leave feeling inspired, energized, and excited to ride.
And no worries if you miss the live sessions – we take detailed show notes with replays, clips, chat transcripts, and more
10 Ride 66 training modules to dig deeper into the frameworks introduced in the live sessions (over 10 hours of recording plus training materials you have access to forever)
Many of you like to dig deeper into the topics. So we also created an immersive video and text-based curriculum that pairs nicely with our Live Sessions. Crammed into these modules are loads of the latest, mind-opening scientific research.
Plan AND realize your specific cycling routine
Within the first days of joining Ride 66, you will find your real cycling goal.
Based on this, we will develop a cycling routine that fits your daily rhythm and helps you to achieve your goal without pressure, tuned to your surroundings.
This will demolish every problem that has kept you from cycling consistently in the past.
We will walk you step by step through how to build an effective cycling habit, how to find time in your busy day to ride, and provide you with the little tools you need to keep track of your developments.
Weekly Q&A sessions to reinforce everything you have learned
The number one thing holding cyclists back?
Their ideas – whether they have no clue how to spend their time on the bike effectively, or they have way too many things they simply want to try out.
No matter how many things you have in your mind, we will solve them in our Q&A sessions that are part of our weekly calls.
All questions solved in the group, it will be 100x harder not to ride than to simply practice every day – and that's the point.
BONUS ACCESS to energetisch.fit
Let's face it... chances are, you're getting in your own way. You know you should go out on your bike, but there's dozens of small beliefs & habits that are keeping you from putting yourself out there.

Life is busy. We know you neither have time, nor want to ride all day.
We will develop effective workouts and routines so that you will spend no more than 60 minutes cycling every day.
But this 60 minute habit of daily cycling is the highest leverage habit in cycling history.
On top of the daily cycling, there is an (optional) live session per week (on Thursdays) as well as a self-paced 10-step curriculum.
On the surface, it might look like this is just an accountability group.
And if you've read through this entire landing page and still think that... I'm not sure what to tell you.
Because Ride 66 is an immersive, cohort-based course and community that uses the 66-day habit-building routine model to make sure you take action.
Well... you could. And I encourage you to try it! Because if it works for you, great!
But chances are, you've tried training on your own before. We have collected and evaluated most recent research so that we are able to provide you with the aggretated cycling knowledge in a very time-efficient way, plus the plus the team experience together with others....
We think the CHF 66 per month is well worth it.

You will learn in a few weeks what takes most riders years to learn.
Don't worry, you don’t need to invest a lot in new equipment. We recommend to have a well-functioning roadbike or mountainbike plus heart-rate monitor. If you have a smart trainer at home, or a power meter installed to your bike, this allows precise routines and guarantees best use of time, but it’s not a must to have.
During the onboarding week, we’ll make you familiar with the different online tools and technologies we will use.
We do our best to accommodate every time zone. At the moment we scheduled the sessions in the evenings of CET. On request, we will also found a live group in the Asian time zone.
If you can't attend a live session, we record each of them and distribute them with detailed show notes, chat transcripts, and everything you could possibly need to soak the learnings out of them.
Yes – in fact, you might be at an advantage.
Ride 66 presents a new way of thinking about cycling – a way of thinking you're not familiar with.
And once you see these frameworks, you can apply them to the cycling you're already doing.
As a result, you'll make a quantum leap in your cycling indicators, all within a few weeks.
You will have access to the course materials FOREVER
