Recommended Posts

Looking for some advice and is possible some links to a 50 Miler MTB training plan, can't really seem to find the free plans.

I'm not sure what sort of distance you're riding at the moment or what your goals are but to keep it really simple just slowly increase your distance until you're comfortable with the distance come race day.


If this is for the Amarider 50 Miler then that race is 99% gravel roads so you should aim to ride that so far as possible. It also has a easy first half and then all the real climbing towards the end so try and structure your rides with the pain and suffering at the end!

On this topic, anyone done the K2C. What are conditions REALLY like for a first timer?

The first 20 odd k's seems  like the tester to complete?

Obviously a lot of offroad rides required, and peak at least by mid August to do the full distance as exercise.

BTW, We are doing our entry this week.
