Here is a suggested 15 week training plan that starts for me on April 10th to get tuned up for this summer’s Ragbrai road trip.
Four days during the week of road riding is going to cramp my mountain bike activity so I will probably opt for three days on the road and just up the mileage per ride.
My neighbor and friend is suggesting that I “Start riding the spars and work you way up to the loop…nothing else will be necessary! The Skull Valley loop is harder than a 70 mile Flat Lander ride…”
With this plan I feel confident that this summer’s event will go great and be a ton of fun.
