I heard so many people preparing for the ride. I haven't even done a thing. My last big ride was 6 month ago when I rode from Dockland to Springvale and back. Been on holiday and feeling unwell for couple of month and now the weather. I'm concern, I might not be able to complete the ride. Anyone with any advice?? It's my first time. I'll be riding a MTB.
ahhh I hear ya! I am in the same boat, first time, signed up for the Half Century, riding a pretty standard bike, trying to shed my winter skin and trying to gage how realistic this goal is. One month to go, is it achievable?
Thanks God, there still people like me, haven't done a thing to prepare for the ride. I believe I can do it but how long will that take(over 9 hrs). For those you haven't prepare for the ride would call the this a real challenge or should I say stupidity. Advice please????
Kirsty & Ahhhh, your goal is still very achievable! All you have to do is make sure you get out on the bikes over the next few weeks. Use the weekends to do longer rides and the afternoons after work to do some shorter ones. Anything is possible if you set your mind on it!
How the training Kristy? Sunday and Monday was a beautiful day for riding. Did 39 km on the road in under 2 hours on a MTB(Sunday) and 20 km on the following day. Hope you still got the inspiration to ride on the ATB-half century ride. Good luck!
With whatever distance you ride, do not try to keep up with everyone else. If you keep your own pace you should be able to go the distance without too many problems. Even without any training the Century is possible, just a little bit slower. Any training will help though.
All parts of the Around the Bay in a Day is done on the road! But don't let that stress you out, the route is well marked so other vehicular traffic will know you are there! There are also marshals out and about along the route!
