Riding the Houston Austin MS150 for the first time
This is a totally new world for me. I have a friend who has MS and I wish to ride the MS 150 for the cause. This is my first time riding a bike and I have no experience what so ever. No training also. I wish to start training and ride the whole race on April 12. I guess it is enough time to train.
Just to give a background, I am not in the perfect shape but I play regular soccer at a competitive level. I do have some strength in my legs. I bike 3-4 times a week for about 10 miles on my mountain bike and finish it off anywhere between 40-43 mins. That is all the biking i am doing
Any tips on how to train, lessons on riding a road bike, eating habits and anything relevant would be of great help and highly appreciated.
