The new 16-page Mastering the Long Ride focuses on the planning and skills involved in riding the ride. Section I covers pre-event preparation, including in-depth advice and tips on planning, mental preparation, organizational, equipment and fuel preparation. Section II covers the event itself, including details on navigation, the benefits of group riding, the importance of “riding your own ride,” event pacing, and maintaining your momentum. It includes sections on nutrition, problem-solving and the mental aspects of riding, and concludes with two sample equipment lists for what’s recommended on rides of 100 km to 200 miles, and rides of 400 km and longer.
This is the final article in Coach Hughes’ trilogy on distance riding, which includes Beyond the Century and Nutrition for 100K and Beyond. Together, this trilogy is a great resource for cyclists interested in “going the distance.” The entire set is available in a cost-saving Endurance Training and Riding -- 3-Article Bundle.
