I mean with a job and a wife and a kid there is no chance I could train enough to ride those sorts of miles let alone go do it.
If you can do 100 miles, you can do 200, as long as you are willing to be on your bike all day. There isn't really any extra training needed, except making sure you know your body well enough to stay on top of hydration & nutrition.
