What We’d Recommend
Follow the training plan – it is important to build up to an event like this
Use Chamois cream – google it. You’ll be thankful we told you about it…
Eat ahead during the ride – you’ll need all the calories you can get so pack them away at every chance. If not, you’ll bonk – and not in a good way.
Stick to the energy drinks and gels you normally take – stomach upsets are not what you need on a long ride
Don’t change your shoes just before the ride. Riding 100+ miles for several days on the go will work your body hard enough. Riding 100 miles at a good pace means over 30,000 pedal strokes per day and changing the way your legs work (even in a small way) can impact the comfort if not done well which can give knee, lower back and other joint pain.
If you are having pain now, get a bike fit. They are worth the money (believe me).
Make sure your bike is in tip top condition.
Get a proper service a month or so before the event as (unless you do 2,000 miles per month) it will allow you to ride a few times afterwards and all the shiny, new stuff will bed in before we go.
