Can I please get some advice?
Hi. I have my first century ride this coming Sunday the 30th. Without going into too much detail, I have been commuting to work for 3 months, and working hard at bettering myself every day. I have approximately 1500 feet a day of elevation to pump up. My longest ride was a 50 miler this last Saturday. It had a moderate variety of hills. I ride a new Specialized RH comp with road tires. I know that I am at a disadvantage with this bike, but it is what I have and I can ride it hard. My 50 took me 3 hours 8 minutes, and I felt great afterward. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being brutal, it was probably a 3, maybe a 4.
I have 5 days before my century. Any help on what to do this week to prepare would be greatly appreciated. I feel like I should do something fairly strenuous prior to the event, maybe tomorrow, like do my hills a couple times or something. But I really have no clue.
Any tips? THANKS!
