Am I ready for the Bike the Coast (50 mile course) in 4 weeks?

I started riding several weeks ago. I'm up to 29 miles for long ride, at 13 mph, mountain bike with thinner tires.

  • Sure! I would try to get a longer ride (40-ish, 3 or more hours) in no later than two weeks before the event. Then rest up, eat right, and plan to just enjoy the experience. Good luck!

  • Listen to Ted. It looks like there are only 3 major climbs in the middle of the ride and they are all less than 250' each. Maybe add some hills later in your ride so you can be prepared for these middle miles.
