My brother and I made an agreement. I am going to run in the Warrior Dash he's been doing the last couple years, and he agreed to do 1/2 of a ride I plan to do in May (I'm gonna do the century, he's gonna do the 1/2)
Sound feasable? My brother isn't really the most active person, he could definitely be in better shape, maybe 6'2/240#.
Aside from just getting him to get on the bike and start getting those muscles used to it, does 3.5 months sound too soon to get him to do the ride? I already know he's not going to ride with my group, as we'll probably average 19-20, i don't expect him to be at that level, but i might know some people doing it that he could get in with.
The ride for the first 50 is flat to slightly downhill. there are a few small hills after the halfway point, but nothing he'd hit. I dont think he's worried about getting any times in, but at the same time, i want him to be able to keep a reasonable enough speed that he can ride in a group and enjoy some benefits of drafting to save some of his energy.
