    I'm doing a 70 miler and am training my distance up for it. I know that you don't train 95 miles before your first century - what's the longest ride I need to do before the 70 miler to be able to make it?

    Shoot for about 2/3 of your target distance for your longest training ride and you should be OK. 50 miles sounds like a nice round number and it's long enough to practice conserving energy on the bike and working out your fluid & food intake.
