HELP!! I am 6' 315 pounds and have set a goal of riding in the "ride to cure diabetes" 100 miles in Montana summer 08'. ( I have a 10 year old daughter with type 1 diabetes) I have no clue about training for this event. It has been 3 weeks since I bought my bike, found some real comfortable bibs and wide shoes. I am now ready to ride. I have very little experience in riding. I purchased a Novara Randonee from REI. They were very helpful and encouraging. I am looking for some kind of structured training program that takes into consideration that a 5 mile flat ride is my starting point. I do not want to get discouraged since my motivation at this point is very high. The best part is that when asking for donations at my current weight people are very willing to pony up. Maybe they think "no way will he ever make 100 Miles". Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
