Hey, all — first time doing RAGBRAI, so I was wondering if experienced people could say whether I’m on-track or not for training.
I should hit 900 miles by the end of June, and ~1300 before RAGBRAI. This past weekend was:
Sat: 30.0 miles, 2:33:00, 11.8 avg mph, 514 ft climb (solo bike) https://www.strava.com/activities/1030471348
Sun: 47.8 miles, 3:51:55, 12.4 avg mph, 2,005 ft climb (tandem) https://www.strava.com/activities/1031828257
My wife and I will be riding our tandem, so Sunday is more accurate. She’s a stronger cyclist than I am, lucky for me. :)
Mostly I’m worried about hills — the last day looks horrifying, but I figure, enh, if we have to walk the 8% grades, fine, whatevs. :)
