Guys - just started cycling 2 weeks ago and found out today that the "Hotter than Hell" 100 event is August 28th in the DFW area (where I live). I was planning to train for a century for 12 weeks or so . .but, I really want to do this race - can I be ready by then?
Some stats on me:
36, male in good shape (been playing tennis for years and have good endurance)
For the last 2 weeks (since I started!) I am biking every day for 7-10 miles and could do more just haven't
Have no health issues
I can train pretty hard between then and now
So, can I make it or should I just opt for the 50 miler?
