Alright, my friend is going to have me to do my first century with him. I did my the Cool Breeze Metric, and to be honest, I got kind of bored after a while. Don't get me wrong, great logistical ride and great organizers. I thought 60m would be just fine for me, but I don't want to wait around for him, so I'll do a century so I can say I did it and get it out of the way of my cycling goals.
He wants to do the Borrego Springs Century, and since it's less than three months away, I figure I'll need to get training soon.
My weekly ride is only the SART, a RT of only about 15 miles for me. I'm looking for training regimes and local routes.
My initial thought is to do a "triangle": work my way up to 100 miles and then back down near the ride day. How many rides should I do of the 100 miles?
As far as routes, I've only been biking for a couple of months, so my route knowledge is only limited to SART . To increase my mileage, I thought I would do SART--->PCH--->Back Bay-->Irvine bike trail until the end, and then go back.
Thoughts, comments appreciated.
