50 Miles? No Problem

The Century is starting to look like a very real possibility next weekend.  I did a good 50 miles, most of it with Beach Cities Cycling Club.  Two trips up Mandeville Canyon helped get met up over 3000 ft of climbing.  That’s half the mileage and almost half the vertical.

With the little climbing that was done in my previous rides, and the way my body seemed to react to it, I was a little apprehensive as to how I might be able to handle the full ride from Carmel to Cambria.  While never getting about 1000 ft in altitude, the amount of vertical is on the order of 6750 ft … lots of up and down (fortunately nothing very steep).

One final major training ride of 70 miles is planned for Monday to bridge the gap to the full distance.
