How to train for a 200 km brevet in 7 months ... from 40 km fast trekking biking?
After being a fast recreational biker during weekends covering 2 rides of 40 km every weekend, I decided that bicycling with a trekking bike is not for me anymore and that I would really be interested in getting a road bike to cover larger distances.
I always had a goal to pursue in my life. As far as cycling is concerned the goal is to complete a 200 km brevet in September.
However, in my mind to go from 40 to 200km in 7 months seems hard, without a training program. I was wondering if anyone has a suggestion or a link I could follow.
I am able to do 3 trainings per week. A 2-3h midweek training session and 2 4-5h training sessions during weekends.
All programs I have found on the net are more demanding timewise, which is not possible since there is a wife and real life issues we all know.
