Training is different for everyone but there are some universal tips to help any rider. One of the best things about Cap2Cap is that it’s a non-competitive, fully supported ride so it’s great for beginners or experienced cyclists looking to test themselves. We’ve consulted Cap2Cap participants and the Trail community about best practices for training for your 23, 52, or even 100-mile rides on May 11th!
Identify Your Starting Point
Are you a regular rider or is this your first time getting on a bike in years? Regardless of where you start, it’s important to go on a ride to find your benchmark. You may find you can only do 15 now but you’re looking to train for 20+ miles. Knowing your starting point will help you identify and set realistic goals so get out on the Trail and ride!
