I originally posted in the long-distance forum, but someone suggested I might find some help here, so here I am (original thread:http://www.bikeforums.net/long-distance-competition-ultracycling-randonneuring-endurance-cycling/329708-experience-advice-sought.html#post5026283).
The gist of it: I'm planning to do a ~220km ride through a desert at night, in about a month. It'll be my longest ride by quite a bit, and the more I think of the details the more I'm thinking I might be biting off more than I can chew. The biggest problem is that there will be very few opportunities for refreshing/refilling water, so I'm gonna have to ride with at least 12 litres. If anyone's interested in the details, I'm in Israel and the ride will be from a little north of Be'er Sheva to a little north of Eilat, via Mizpe Ramon.
Any and all thoughts welcome!
