I just joined BikeForums, because I have begun training for my very first 50 mi ride. I've never ridden that distance before, and it's my goal for the summer. I'm transitioning from a not very active lifestyle to serious training.
I know the obvious, stuff like "ride a lot", but what are some hints and advice some of the more experienced riders can give me? Good diets? Strength building exercises? Stuff like that. Looking to get on a pretty strict regimen, and I have nothing but time to train... the problem is, I don't know where to start.
