Double Century(7 posts)

OK, a little while ago everyone was handing out advice for doing a century. What about a double century? I just bought my first road bike a month or so ago and have been working my ass off trying to ready myself for the Alamo Challenge in October. Houston to San Antonio in one weekend, about 110 miles per day. I have been trying to ride at least 100 miles per week. This is a charity ride similar to the MS150, so racing is not an issue, but I do not want to wind up on a SAG wagon on Sunday. Any help/advice is appreciated.

I would try to push my mileage up to (at least) 150 a week if you're going to do back-to-back. If time does not permit, make sure you're riding speed is considerably faster than what you expect to do during the centuries.
