Mike D has prepared some invaluable advice about riding longer rides. Whether you are just wanting to do longer rides, or preparing for P2P – the tips below will hopefully help.
The P2P Charity Ride seems a long way off (33 weeks from 20/11) but to give yourself a chance of really enjoying it, you need to be start preparing now.
It’s important to get cycling if you can, but if this not possible during winter, do other general fitness activity (swimming, walking the dog, indoor cycling, jogging etc).
