Cyclists : How to Prepare for a Century Ride
Cycling Tips for Training for a Century Ride:
Is endurance sports advice "universal?"
|Cycling over the Golden Gate Bridge|
James Herrera provides advice for training for a century ride in the article 'Your Best Century' For Bicycling.com.
As a runner, some of the tips sound very familiar:
- Check your equipment.
- Map out the water stops.
- Don't eat/drink/wear anything new the day of the race.
The article also offers advice for breaking down weekly cycling workouts into one long ride and weekly shorter rides.
Cycling and long distance running may be two different sports, but it seems as if some endurance sports advice is universal. Before I moved to San Diego, I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and I followed all three of the tips above when preparing for summit night.
