How to survive a long ride

Categories

Ironman ArizonaNovember 16th, 2014
The big day is here.

1. Do first hour on trainer. You can accomplish alot this way. .such as. ..
-eating a warm breakfast
-warm up your stiff joints while locked in place
-can start super early so as to avoid dark not safe morning rides (or super foggy mornings like today)

2. Find a long course free of traffic. .and full of farms. . They make for great scenery.
-I feel much safer riding 2 abreast and can pass time with enjoyable conversation.
-if you’re a triathlete. .you can ride Aero alot more frequently. ..

Today’s ride was just shy of 75 miles and lasted about 4.75 hours. ..We rode much faster outside but the indoor portion on the trainer always brings down the average speed. Was a great ride minus the couple of butt holes we encountered. .
