  • Shoosh, last year I couldn't even walk to the toilet due to a back injury. Ok, I was commuting before that, but by the time I got back on the back I struggled to cycle 3 miles.
    One year is ample time. Make sure you start commuting etc, then gradually build in longer distances. If you're able to cycle a swift 30-50 miles in comfort, you'll be OK.

    Many people this that I saw didn't have much training at all. it just took them a bit longer, that's all.

  • From Wikipedia:

    Maurice-Francois Garin
    His first true professional win was in a 24-hour race in Paris in 1893[n 2] It was held on the Champ de Mars, site of the Eiffel Tower. The riders competed, as was the custom, behind a succession of pacers. The event took place in February and the cold drove out riders one after the other. Garin rode 701 km in 24 hours, beating the only other rider to finish by 49 km. Garin said he had survived on [9]
    lots of strong red wine
    19 litres of hot chocolate
    seven litres of tea
    eight cooked eggs
    a mix of coffee and champagne
    45 cutlets
    five litres of tapioca
    two kilos of rice
    and oysters.

    Eating advice for next year methinks ;)

  • ^I don't like the thought of tucking all that into a jersey.

    Thanks, yes I'm taking it slowly. At the moment I'm working out in the gym more to improve my overall fitness. My key target is to be able to do 40 miles by April, with lots of little goals in between>

  • Maybe Lon Haldeman 90% rule is what we all should go by?

  • Yeah I'm in. On a tandem.

    Dibs I'm with you. :)
