Due to military duties, family, and so on I'm back on my bike doing anywhere from 66 to 150+ miles per week. I'm working to move from a B rider to A and prepping for a century in Sept. Out tomorrow for 65 miles on the racing bike I had built in the village I lived in while stationed in Italy in 1985. She's holding up well after thousands of miles, but I'm thinking a new bike soon is in order to save the classic for perfect days. Specialized, or Pinarello....other suggestions.
Recommendations for training are also appreciated as well. At 50 I now have had time to train again as well as being blessed with the WO&D trail ending in my town about three blocks from the house. Nothing beats road miles of course and I have several routes that vary from 15 very hilly to varied terrain 45 to 65 mile rides. I ride almost daily if I can and do one long ride each week. I'll be stepping that up to doing 230 plus miles a week by the first week of September with the long ride at 85 miles. I am looking forward to riding long distance rides again and meeting those that seek something beyond the regular routine.
Failed to mention that I plan to do 10 Century rides next year, and will do at least one Double Century God willing.
