I just registered for the Six Gap Century on Sept 28th. I know it is still 3 months away but I wanted to get some feedback from others who have done this before so I can make sure I am prepared.
I'm relatively new to the area, having moved here from Chicago in the Fall of '06. I got serious about riding while in Chicago but there aren't many hills in the area so moving down here was a revelation as far as climbing goes. I enjoy the hills and am a decent climber so I am excited to see how I do. I have been getting in decent (for me) miles each week and will be doing a few centuries before the six gap. I did the 3 State in May and finished in just over 6 hours but Burkhalter gap was a real challenge. I am doing the "front 3 gaps" this weekend and am planning on doing the back 3 a couple of times before the event.
For those of you that have done this ride, what kind of training have you done prior to it and what were your experiences on the ride, both good and bad?
