50 & 100 Mile Advice

Hey all,

I've never entered a cycle before before, but always wanted to. About 3 months ago, while riding to work, i came off my bike and knocked my front teeth out, took the top layer of skin off my lip, broke my nose and fractured my wrist. Determined to get back on it, i signed up for the 50 mile Three Counties ride this Sunday and 100 mile RideLondon in August for charity - If anyone is feeling generous, my donation page is below (Any amount is greatly appreciated!).
Virgin Money Giving | Fundraising | Sam Wood's RideLondon Fundraising Page

So basically i'm looking for the best tips and advice when it comes to riding those kinds of distances. I'm not too worried about the Three Counties but RideLondon seems a bit daunting. How far should i be training for RideLondon? Best product to keep me from feeling fatigued? etc..

Many thanks in advance!

The best product to keep you from being fatigued is ... cycling more.

What kind of distance are you comfortably doing now?

100 miles isn't as hard as you think. Nake sure yoyr bike is setup right, stay hydrated and eat enough. Trainihg is no big deal eithee. Just ride everyday and your body will do the rest.
