Can you supplement your preparation with any indoor cycling? I didn't ride outdoors from February 3rd (a flat 100K) until a very hilly 200K in Kentucky on 2/23. My previous 200K was January 5th then no outdoor riding until February 3rd (hello Polar Vortex!). Since the weather was miserable and the roads unsafe (your area was worse in terms of setting records), I got my butt onto the stationary bike at the gym to get some conditioning on my legs for the 2 weeks prior to my 200K. I had one weekend day where I was able to do 3 @ 1 hour sessions. I ended up being fine for the 200K.

So I feel that if you can start now, you will be ready for April 20th! I'll be looking for you!
