Do you need a reserve in case someone drops out? I'd be happy to fulfill that function if needed

I've just filled in my entry form & sent it off, doing a 2 man team & sh*tting it - my 1st event....ever :oops:

What sort of training should I be doing, genuine question

I plan on doing my commute to work 3 times a week which is 16 miles each way & then a 50 miler on either saturday/sunday - that anywhere near what I should be doing?

oh yeh, aim to loose a stone of fat too in the process & turn it into muscle!

cheers for any advice

Martin

Sound decent training to me Martin, would obviously suggest some night riding too. Don't forget to get decent rest in as well, that's a key part of getting fitter.

Basically, however fit you are a race of whatever distance should feel hard at the end if you go for it - as Greg Lemond said "it never gets any easier, just faster" - although the fitter you are the 'better' the hard feels and the quicker you recover.
