    did you train for long before the trip? I mean even for long treks it is usually advised to run 5 kms daily for about three months. Preferably with weights to strengthen calf muscles.. just enquiring

      I had done some long rides before the tour. However, it is definitely not enough. Cycling training is not same as running. Especially with the added weight part. It is a low impact, cardio-dominated sport.

      Jamie Anderson is using TfN as a training for UCI Masters 2017 in Albi. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmc6HohWVCs

      He gave a talk about how to prepare for cycling events on Day 5. I can safely say, I did nothing.
