Any cycling event requires proper preparation, both mentally and physically. Long distance rides require stamina and endurance which takes a time to craft. Commitment, motivation and training are the basic ingredients you’ll need to get yourself sailing through the miles.
Training for such a feat of strength won’t be easy. You’ll have to work hard, train hard and most importantly, train safely. It’s easy to get carried away with passing the hours at the gym or on the bike, that you can unknowingly cause yourself an injury.
To get your training on the right path, and prevent any delays, we’ve put together a helpful guide to get yourself physically prepared for an epic long distance adventure, either on road or off. We’ve teamed up with Tom Astley of TA Physio who specialises in sports rehab and injury prevention to help with this guide.
