Back into training for the AIDS/LifeCycle ride I did last year (San Francisco to LA in a week) and first post Christmas training ride tomorrow, any bike geeks about to chat all stuff biking over the coming months?
Any level any interest, just a gentle thread about messing about on bikes!
It's 545mikes but done over a week so while there's two century days the others are relatively short (though with bigger hills!) and it's so well organized and supported - there are inspiring people doing it, those into their 70's and 80's, people with full blown AIDS etc. it's a total love bubble .... Not everyone rides every mile but that's not really the point. I don't get the triathletes who sign up a week before and use it as a training exercise - I mean, I do, but a huge part of the experience is being part of it, not just riding into camp so quickly they haven't had time to set up the showers yet!!
