I would like to do a 1/2 century this fall. I should be able to get there just by riding regularly, and not wussing out at the 40 mile mark. But what about the full century?
Here is a little info on me.
I am 29. Weigh in at 230lbs. I just got my first road bike and love it. I have done a 26 mile ride with a couple stops to streach and relax. I was by myself, and it was flat. No problems at all then, but after the ride, I really didn't feel like I could've gone too much further.
So I am looking for advice on how to work up to that 100mile mark. Is it as simple as ride a 30 miler, then move up to 35, then 40 and so on?
Sorry for the rambling, and thanks in advance.
