My 13 year old son and I continue training for our cross country ride this summer. We have been riding and working out at the Y.M.C.A. until the weather clears a bit.
One training ride we plan to do 3 times a week beginning around April is a 16 mile ride to a local ski resort. It's a two-lane road that turns 172 times and gains 3400 feet. The total ride is 32 miles.
Thoughts on this ride and additional suggested training?
