I will be riding the Rough Road 100 on April 4th, as it is my first gravel “race” I’m not quite sure what to expect. I’ve ridden well over 100km on the road more times than I can count, but I’ve never done this sort of distance on a trail. My current thinking is to plan/train for it like I would for a road century (100 miles). Suggestions around how to prepare better are welcome. Feel free to drop them in the comments or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly.
I hope to have a Mamilian.bike jersey by then, so if you see me please stop by and say hi.
