1. What is your comfortable long distance right now? For example, are you riding centuries every weekend, etc.?
2. Have you started Randonneuring yet? The RAAM riders I know do a lot of Randonneuring events to get comfortable with the distances, etc.
3. Have you done a 24-hour race yet? The RAAM riders I know also do 24-hour races for practice, and as the qualifier for the RAAM, of course.
If you're interested in the RAAM, I assume you've been to this site already and have read through the articles: http://www.ultracycling.com/
... and specifically, if you haven't been here already, you'll want to go here: http://www.ultracycling.com/siteindex.html#raam
My Links page lists all sorts of Randonneuring and 24-hour race sites if you need that information: http://www.machka.net/links.htm
And of course, this is the official site of RAAM: http://www.raceacrossamerica.org/raa...?N_webcat_id=1
I have several friends who have done the RAAM as a team, and I'd like to do the RAAM as a part of a team one day too, but it hasn't fit into my schedule or budget yet.
