Hey there everyone. I am new to the forum and I am just getting into riding on the road. I usually just ride my mtn bike about 10-15 miles on the weekends. Lately I have been adding some road rides during the week, and yesterday completed 31 miles. There was some elevation change, but I can't tell you how much. Couldn't have been more than a few hundred feet though.
So here is my question. I am thinking of signing up for the 62 mile ride in the Audi Best Buddies Challenge that is in just about 10 weeks from now. The course is 62 miles and just over 4100ft elevation gain. I have access to plenty of hills to train on, but don't want to bite off more than I can chew. I'm not the most competitive person out there and basically want to finish the ride in one piece.
Yes I know it all depends on my commitment as well, but would doubling my distance in 10 weeks when I haven't really done any training yet be reaching too far?
