training for flint hills tour
Planning a week long tour thorugh the flint hills in kansas.
no mountains but a ~lot~ of long slow grades.
what kind of training is best for that kind of endurance?
i read some about developing speed but didnt see any for stamina on hills.
i have done a lot of 30 to 45 mile rides, and a few longer but no overnight touring, and i am concerned about getting tapped out after three days of hill climbing.
also what is a good food to pack for emergencies out in the middle of 40 miles of amber waves of grain?
