As winter peeks from under the covers I need a challenge to keep in the saddle and stay on the weight-loss journey. I have made the decision to sign-up for the Seattle area "Chilly Hilly" in February. I presently weigh 289lbs (down from 316lbs) and want to be at around 260lbs by February in time for this ride. Thoughts:
Is this ride suitable for a clyde at my weight? The route:
I intend switching my regular riding to three nights a week of 8 mile rides of a 600-800ft climbing route. Along with a weekend 30 mile ride with climbs (TBD). Good start?
I ride a 2010 Roubaix Comp - stock. Should I change anything out for the climbing?
Thanks all - Im excited
