I'm cycling from dublin to Galway over 2 days (around 200km) for charity in a week and would appreciate any last minute advice offered!! Now i know to most people viewing this forum a 200km cycle wouldn't seem like a long distance, but im posting here because you all must have started somewhere!! I've made a good attempt at training over the last 3 weeks (bin going to the gym to cycle and run alot and have been gradually building up my fittness.... I was an exercise-ophobe beforehand!) And since september I've been cycling to college (about a 25 minute cycle)
A good few people taking part in the cycle aren't taking it seriously at all so i dont feel too unprepared. And we'll be taking breaks every 20km or so apparently.
But I'm still starting to get a bit scared... And I cant back out because I've got loads of sponsors already!!
So any advice???
