I saw the commercial today for the Wish-A-Mile Bike tour which is a 3-day event, 100 miles each day. The bikers spend the night at a school and there are busses that can pick up riders that are tired or hurt or whatever during the day. My question is...how long does it take to train for tours like that? I would love to do this tour even though I'm just now starting out cycling. I ride a hybrid bike and the longest i've ridden was 13 miles in an hour. i know..not much but its a least a start. I told myself that if i'm still biking, whether in the gym once winter hits or outside on my bike, that I will buy a road bike and my parents said they'd help me out. But..can people train for these things in a year or does it take longer? This tour seems awesome and I would love to do it. :-)
Does anyone have any good training advice?
Thanks for the help everyone!
