I'm thinking about doing this: https://www.epilepsy.org.uk/involved/fundraise-events/cycling-tour-of-th...
It's 200 miles over three days from Blackpool to Scarborough, including a 'Buttertubs Pass King of the Mountain categorized climb'. It's mid-September this year.
It looks like quite a challenge and I have no aversion to training hard for it, but I was after advice from you guys who have way more experience than me.
The most I've done on the road until now is 20 miles. I'm 40, not unfit and up for a challenge. As some of you know, I've just got my first road bike (Whyte Suffolk) after having been mainly an off-road man.
While I like a challenge I'm wondering whether this might be too ambitious a target for five months time? Pretty sure I could manage 70 odd miles in a day, just not sure about three days in a row with some hellish climbs thrown in!!
I expect you will say join a local club and get advice from them, though I have to say I quite enjoy the solitude of long(ish) rides on my own.
Anyway, what do you think?
As always, thanks.
