I have been riding Wal-Mart bike for several years and I finally got a real bike (Fuji newest 3.0 2010). Iíve always dreamed of doing a long distance ride but I never had the time to. Now I am starting college next year and I am thinking biking back home for spring break. From Laurel, MD to Richmond, VA approximately 150 miles according to Google maps for bikes. Any suggestions on training? I currently ride 15 miles day after school and 24 on Saturday. I am increasing distance at 10% a week. Also what kind of supplies would I need for such a ride?
