I'm in the process of starting to train for riding and 8 hour mountain bike event with a partner. My partner is already in pretty good shape but I wanna make sure I do my part.
any one have some tips or tools (I use a hear rate monitor on the road) for making sure your not slacking off too much when you ride alone and are still putting the hammer down. I'll have to do at least half of the 4 hours and most of my current rides with people are 2 hours at a casual pace. so I wanna get out and really push my bodies limits a few times a week to ensure I'm ready come mid august
