I don't know what put this in my head, but I am considering doing a 200k next summer. I a. About 5'7 and currently 280's(down from 440's). Last two months have logged about 500 miles, including my longest to date of 65(in 7 hours). I also currently ride a hybrid with bar ends, and a new bike is not an option right now.
Is this realistic? I would be looking at a June event, in similar terrain that I live around. I am hoping to keep riding this winter, but will also be joining a gym. Any specific advice? Training plans you might recommend? Feel free to tell me if you think this not a good idea...
I appreciate your time,
