So tomorrow I'm riding in the Tour de Cure in my area. I've signed up for the 65 mile route, but I am seriously contemplating the full century (I can change when I pick up my packet in the morning). The farthest I've gone so far on a bike was 53 miles. I was tired at the end, but overall I did it fairly easily and wasn't dead once I was done. I know I can do the 65 miles no problem - but am I foolish to tackle the 100?
There are plenty of stops every 10-15 miles (I think there are 8 total), so I'll have time to break throughout the ride.
Is breaking it up into 1 hour segments enough to make it doable? Or should I just hold off and attempt a century later?
