BICYCLE INDIA 2007
My training for "Bicycle India 2007" has begun in earnest. I've trained indoors due to weather long enough. If we are to ride an average of 65 miles a day for six weeks less than a year from now, I've got to hit the pavement more consistently and for longer treks. I hope to be turning 30-mile rides daily by May, with longer treks when possible throughout the summer. By late Autumn, I want to be approaching 45-mile rides routinely. Our team has a week-long training ride planned for the Upper Penninsula of Michigan in July, with other options pending. Conditioning and preparation for a 2000 mile ride is not just a physical preparation, but a mental and spiritual challenge, as well.
