It is not solely a ceremony of passage however it additionally rightly comes with an awesome sense of accomplishment. Even on ‘straightforward’ terrain, driving 100 miles is extraordinarily powerful and requires not solely bodily but additionally psychological energy. I nonetheless bear in mind my first 100-mile experience which, out of necessity, did have a number of café stops and after I bought in I used to be very a lot prepared for my mattress.

However – do it’s good to truly experience 100 miles upfront of taking in your occasion or problem? In fact it might assist, however that is extra as a result of it builds the boldness in your self that you are able to do it. Should you don’t have a limiteless variety of hours on the bike to spare –  as many people don’t – what then? I recall, my longest experience was round 3-4 hours previous to my first 12-hour mountain bike occasion.
