My son (18 yo) and I (48 female) are vascillating whether we should attempt this. I feel as though I have biked enough to be able to complete it, although it won’t be pretty. I have biked about 60-100 miles a week (closer to 60-70, with only a few 100) for about 12 weeks. My longest ride is 60 miles. It was not a struggle. And I have biked five days in a row of 20 miles a day. My son has done significantly less, biking only 2-3 times a week, but easily completed a 50 mile bike, and he has youth on his side. Are all 10,000+ riders completely fit and training like crazy? Are there a significant number of riders who really are just recreational riders? What is the least amount of training you would attempt RAGBRAI on? Any input would be appreciated as we need to make a decision whether to do this or not.
