Greetings, I've agreed to do a bikeathon in Mid August (dates to be confirmed) and i've agreed to do it as i love cycling. Thing is, i've never cycled more than 8 miles in one go, this will be 26miles or so? (Marathon Distance). I'm 15stone/9lbs, waist of 36-38 and 6ft. Looking for advice on how to prepare myself for the cycle, training tips etc. ANy advice would be greatly appreciated!
