I have recently made a commitment to biking more and riding less. This started out with me commuting to work (~12 mi round trip), and in just over 2 months has led to me selling my car to raise money for bike gear! Gotta have rain gear here in the NW.
This is turning in to a very powerful addiction, to the point that I am planning to enter this years Seattle to Portland ride. 206 miles in two days, or farther then I have ridden in two days ever. In my youth I was in a school bike club, and the longest ride was 60 miles.
I know that, with the right training regimen I will be able to make the trip with relative ease. My question is what would be a good training regimen? I know that the club that organizes the ride (Cascade Bike Club) also runs several training rides, but my work schedule keeps me from joining in on them, so I need to do alot of this on my own.
If any members have done this ride, or similar ones, and has any input, it would be greatly appreciated, to say the least! I don't expect to be the first one done, but I do want to finish!
Thanks in advance
