I'm planning on doing the Seattle-to-Portland in one day this summer. It's a 204 mile ride. I'm hoping that this is an attainable goal for a clydesdale. I'm sure that there are other under 6' and 200+ lbs riders that have done this. I'm interested in what your training program was, what type of equipment you were on, how far you went, and were you so miserable that you vowed never to do anything like it again?
Interested in your opinions on what the ideal equipment would be for such a ride. Remember, for me, speed is not critical... I just want to finish the ride before it gets dark.
