You’ ve been training all summer to your long rides and labored yourself up from 30 miles to 35, consequently 45, then 60 and then finally, just recently, you pedaled for the purpose of 70 long ones. Congratulations are in order!
Your ultimate goal, as stands out as the case with most cyclists, is the century travel or 100 miles. Together with rightfully so, because it can be a lofty achievement, sets you independent of the recreational weekend warrior not to mention demonstrates your grit.
Let’ s go over a checklist of things you will have learned by now, after which you can add a few things with the upcoming long haul.
Earliest, you’ ve learned to carb the night before a prolonged ride with spaghetti or baked potatoes or each of those. You’ ve learned to generally be fully hydrated and drink quite a lot of water the day well before. You also avoid alcohol every one forms several nights before you ride.
Second, you have your clothes covered for the weather you’ lmost all encounter, including your electrical power bar preference, and energy drink of hospitality attire of your two normal water bottles.
Third, you have cleaned and lubed you bike, pumped up the tires, have extra tubes, tire-changing tools, tire spew, computer, heart rate observe and sunglasses and sunscreen.
At last, the night before, undertake some mental and bricks-and-mortar preparation. A mental checklist to your abilities is always a good thing… reassure yourself that there is trained for this and are ready, make sure your whole gear is prepared for the early departure to put additional confidence, and then do some light stretching before to bed. Above all mentally you should plan on having a great cycle, without any complications and luxuriate in yourself because you are ready.
The morning of the expensive vacation event take a hot shower if at all because it will get hot your legs, don’ t eat a significant meal, consume enough to get you going and have energy bars in your own jersey to satisfy your hunger before you will get to your first rest discontinue.
At the first rest stop, consume a banana, a good PB & J and pick up two or three energy bars to replace whatever you have already eaten. When you get to that first rest stop are you looking to urinate? If not, thinking of drinking enough? If you are well hydrated you’ ll will need to go at the initially or second rest stop.
On really long rides as a century, if it is usually a summer ride you might sweat more, so you need to are replacing your sodium via the bars or drink. I personally use them a tablet with electrolytes to supplement them because I sweat profusely as soon as weather is warm as well as I ride hard.
These days, go out and execute, because cycling is enjoyment, don’ t make the item too serious. Good luck!
