Bike Training 2.0 Thoughts.


When I did that last bike trip to France my legs held up pretty well, but my butt was sore as hell and that was the biggest factor in the ride from a pain perspective. The month before the trip I did 13 days on my bike, a total of 26 hours, with 5 rides over 30 miles. I don’t think that was enough to be as ready as I’d like to be…

On the ride, my average daily miles was ~41 miles and around 3 hours 20 minutes. What I can find online says that a good rule of thumb is to be doing 3 rides a week that mimic what you are going to do on the bike tour (for at least 2 to 3 weeks before). Or at least the mileage/time in some format. So if my training needs to ramp up to at least 3 rides a week of 40 miles / 3.5 hours that is ~120 miles a week, and more importantly around 10.5 hours on the bike.

This is bwb’s personal blog so he can share his thoughts with the world, however scary or silly they might be. Plus family and friends can track what I am up too, and where I am in the world.

I am pretty simple. I love Mangos. I love the ocean, although mostly at sunset as I’m a ginger. I love to travel, eat exotic food, read, and use my imagination. I love creating and developing ideas into businesses, understanding how all businesses work, and building cool stuff. I am a globalist and see the entire world as my responsibility and playground. And, I am married to an amazing woman who makes life even more fun :)! And, we are now the proud parents of Calico Jack :).
