In less than a month is the Salt Lake Century ride. As the title suggests, I'm thinking about doing it.
I haven't done much in the way of "training", per se, but I am a regular to semi-regular bike commuter, with a 10 mile each way route. And that has become fairly easy. I go on 30 mile or so rides on weekends about twice a month.
So. I probably need to prepare a bit more. That goes without saying, and I have little time to do it. Any advice on that front will be welcome.
I also have some equipment considerations. I currently ride on platforms...should I go clipless, and how long do you think it would take to get comfortable with them? Would I have time enough to adjust?
I commute half the time in cargo shorts. I know, not "acceptable" bike wear, but it's a handy way to carry certain things (ID, etc.) Should I consider getting some "bike shorts"?
Anyhow, any words are appreciated!
