I have my first long (for me) ride next weekend. It's the Long Beach Tour de Cure and I'm planning on doing the 62 mile route. I've known for a while that I wanted to do the ride, and when I first signed up, I thought I'd have gotten more training time in than I ultimately was able to get in by now. So, now I'm looking for some advice on what I should do in this last week before doing the ride next weekend.
My longest ride previously is 46 miles, and I average probably 25 miles per ride these days. I've been off the bike more than on it lately though, maybe getting in 2 or 3 rides a week. Those are fairly flat rides though, and it looks like the TdC route is hillier than I'm used to.
I guess what I'm looking for is advice on how many rides to get in this week, whether or not I should work on anything specific, or ride less and save my legs for next Sunday. I'm a little nervous about this ride as my original plan was to train enough to do it easily, but that didn't happen. Now, I just want to complete it.
Any feedback or advice is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
