You'll probably get more replies in the General Cycling forum. I can move the thread for you or you can re-post your thread there.
As for tips:
The ride is not a race so ride in an easier gear than usual and enjoy yourself.
Eat and drink and rest at the rest stop(s).
Ride with a friend if possible.
Eat a good breakfast (oatmeal, fruit, etc).
Make sure you have a spare tube, patch kit, and pump and/or CO2 inflator, and a multitool.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. - Psalm 103:8
