After several years off from cycling, I have decided to get back into it. I am in okay shape, but I need some serious work. I plan on working on a good base first, but my long term goal is to do the Best Buddies Challenge in September in Califorina. I would like to ride the 100 mile ride and I am looking for some good advice on Century Training. I basically have 6 months to do it. I have already made changes to my diet to work on some minor health issues, and weight is an issue. So, with that in mind, my short term goal is to get into bike riding shape and loose some weight. Long term is of course the BB Challenge. I don't expect to loose all the weight in 6 months, although I suppose it's possible. I need to drop about 50 lbs. I think the Century Ride would be a great way to celebrate reaching my goal.
So, again, I am looking forward to some good advice on Century Training, and for that matter on basic training to set a good base and get swtarted on the weight loss. One other issue is that I live in Arizona so much of my training heading into the summer will be indoors on a trainer. I have a good bike and a good training stand, as well as a heart rate monitor.
Thanks for any advice!
