Training for a tour assistance.

I have a couple of lady friends who are need a bit of training instructions etc.
They are very experienced and average over 2000 miles per season ( Standard bikes)
Ages,,, over 60.
They will be heading to South Africa for a week long tour of 40-75 miles per day.
They are seeking some sort of "on-line" type training program.
Hopefully the training will provide them with additional stamina, speed and hill climbing.
If any of you have some ideas, I'll pass them on to the ladies.

    A great resource is: https://www.trainingpeaks.com/training-plans/cycling
     
    Get a plan, apply it to the calendar, get emails of your daily workouts.

    They don’t need the isolation of an online training program. They need companionship, encouragement, and post-workout drinking buddies. Suggest they locate a non-drop bike club. Most bike shops can refer them to several nearby clubs. If they’re planning on 50 mile days, they need to be able to do metric centuries without thinking about it much. Many non-drop clubs have plans designed to help beginners achieve metrics or full centuries after a carefully plotted training program. You can use online tracking systems but the plans are soulless.
