I should be in pretty good shape for this but I don't normally do this much climbing. Some of the roads in the ride are my normal training roads so it should be interesting. I am 50, started to ride again last year (February) after a 15 year hiatus. I have put in 500-700 miles per month of mixed climbing and flats about 5 times a week.
There is now 2 weeks to this event. How should a best structure my riding/prep/foods before this event? It is of course not a competition, but I just want to optimize the old body.
