Been into cycling around 18 months or so now. I got into biking to attempt to loose some weight and just become fitter/healthier in general. The birth of my little boy has been the driving force behind this
What with work, a dog, a 20 month old little boy, and a partner with horses - finding the time to get on the bike isnt always the easiest.
The above aside, Im quite interested in upping my mileage, although this may not be massivley impressive to some, I broke my PB and completed a 46 mile ride over the weekend and was chuffed to bits with it.
After spending some time on social media, I stumbled accross a sportive called the Tour De Broads which is quite appealing as its an area of the country I really like. My neighbour (who I bike with) suggested we/I attempt the 75 mile course.... Im interested in doing this but perhaps lack the confidence/concerned that its a big step up considering I felt flat as a pancake after a coffee and cake stop (the final 15 miles) all the way home from my recent PB outing!
Does anyone have any tips/advice on how to prepare/whether id be foolish to attempt the 75 mile route in around 3 months?
