I’m doing the Solvang half century on March 13th. So far the longest bike ride I’ve done is about 30 miles or so. The longest recent ride has been a little over 20. With my work schedule and lifting, I can realistically ride twice a week, once during the week and once on the weekend. Any ideas on getting ready for the ride?
I don’t expect to post a fantastic time, but I would like to finish it. I was considering doing rides during the week of about 15 miles at a relatively fast pace, with weekend rides at my race pace, slowly working up to about 35 miles and then backing off. Thoughts?
