I'd like to consider some short tours this summer (for the first time ever) and a number of them that look interesting are in the 2-4 day range, 60-120km/day (short-long days). The longest rides I've done are about 60-65km in a 2-3hr (2 different routes) timespan (essentially continuous with a 10min or so break in the middle to drink and stretch before the next section). These rides were each done on a single day with a couple of days after with little to no riding. My legs are generally toast after these rides.
I'm 53 this summer, 5'8", 170lb (despite living in Canada for 46yrs, I still think of my height and weight in Imperial). In the warmer weather, I commute to work 3-4 times a week, 16km each way.
What can I expect when a tour (Finger Lakes) states 60-110 km/day? How do I train for this?
Thanks for your help,
