    Pre_Century ride question !

    I am doing a Century ride on Saturday (July 31) and it involves over 7,000 ft of climbing ! I have been training hard and was wondering if I should do a Hilly training ride today (thursday) and just a flat ride on Friday ?

    Any help would be appreciated !

    If your Century ride is this Saturday, it does not really matter as you should be resting more then riding at this point. Any training 2 days before is not gonna have much of an impact unless you train too hard thes next 2 days

    I would do an easy 15 mile or so ride and then no more then 5 or 10 EASY miles on Friday, get a good night's sleep

    Thanks Bolo, that exactly what I was thinking, but wanted to get other opinions ! It will be fun logging my 250 lb butt up the hillls !

    Bolo is right. You have done all the training you can for a Saturday ride. I would suggest just doing rides that are nice and easy until Saturday.
