Howdy. I'm a long time san jose based mountain biker and recreational (around town/commute) road biker on a Trek hybrid. I came across the team-in-training website and noticed they were doing a century ride around Tahoe in June, and thought that this might be a fun challenge. Couple of questions though and I'm hoping that you guys can point me in the right direction.
1) Can this ride be done on a hybrid? I've done 20-30mi rides already and don't have too much discomfort. It is a tank compared to my mtn bike, but I wouldn't dare try 100mi on road with a mtn bike.
2) What LBS (I'm in SJ) would you guys recommend that I visit if #1 requires a new bike? Also, while I have plenty of experience test riding/buying a mtn bike, I don't have the faintest idea of how to test ride a road bike.
3) Are there any bay area websites that would have good routes that I could use for training?
Thanks in advance,
