I'm new to the forum and I joined for a particular purpose. Next summer (summer of 2010) im doing a program that involves biking lake michigan in 3 weeks and I was wondering how to best train for this. I know that the miles per day range from 30-65 and during all this we'll be carrying about 30 pounds on our bike. I realize that it's very far ahead but I figure there's no harm in starting early. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
