    Hi all,

    I wanted to get some opinions on training for the MS 150
    that I will be doing in 3 1/2 months. The first day is 80+
    miles and the second 60+ on hilly terrain. Right now I am
    riding 40 minutes on rollers 3-4 days a week and will
    increase to an hour next week. Not sure how far I am going,
    due to my computer isn't working at the moment. I suspect I
    am going between 15-20 mph. I hope to ride outside when the
    weather gets nicer.

    Any tips on training to get up to the 80-60 miles I will
    need to do?

    Thanks, Curt

    Hi, I was thinking about signing up for that, but I can't
    seem to find any maps or route profiles.

    It seems kind of silly to sign onto an event merely based on
    mileage, without taking into account exactly where those
    miles are going to take place. Rolling in the flats is one
    thing--climbing mountains, quite another.

    I might have been pleased if they told me where in Virginia
    they were riding! there are wide, flat, windy places in the
    Commonwealth....and there are also long, steep roads.

    Without having a general idea of the route or terrain, I
    can't judge how ready I am for the MS150--whatever mileage
    options I take.

    I know the route I will be taking on the ride, I am just
    looking for some training advice. If I do back to back 50's,
    will that be enough to do this, or should I do an 80
    sometime, to see how I do?
