Keep that riding schedule until the last few days before the ride;
There is no substitute for good training! It’s the difference between a good experience and a not-so-good experience on the Ride. You don’t have to be a super fit cyclist to do this Ride, but you do need to put in the training time. This section will provide guidance to help you set and meet your training goals.   We provide suggested training plans, strategies, mileage tracking charts, injury prevention tips, suggestions to avoid burnout, as well as resources you will   want to have access to throughout your training.

 Check back often for more information as our website is currently under construction.
