Trans Canada Trail. HELP!!!
Hi all you savvy bikers out there,
I need your help. I want to do the Trans Canada Trail http://www.tctrail.ca/thetrail.php
next summer and I have no idea how to get ready for it. I've never done long distance biking and I can't say that I'm really a cyclist. I can officially say that I've been off training wheels since the age of 4 sooooo...I think I can do it.
What I want to know is HOW DO I DO THIS?
How do I train?
What do I wear?
What kind of bike will last?
What should I know about bike mechanics?
What foods should I eat?
Tell me all of your tips...pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeee and thank you.
PS: Going to be living in the UAE for the year and it's like a billion degrees. Are stationary bikes good enough to train on?
