Bike/sport enthusiasts: can a daily bike commuter but otherwise not sporty person hope to finish a 120 miles bike ride in one go?
I commute to work using my bike - 26 kms a day, 5 days a week. Takes me roughly 45 mns to get to work (that's central London). I would say I'm a slow-to-average cyclist.
Apart from this and occasional longer week-end rides, I don't do sports. I don't think I'm an endurance-loving type, I don't run, I don't lift, etc.
I however would love to participate in the Dunwich dynamo ride
next week-end - a 120 miles ride, overnight, with minimal elevation.
What would you say are my chances to cross the finish line? Does it sound like an absurd and unrealistic goal? The website says the ride is completed by many commuters, but not knowing much about exercise, I have no idea if this is a herculean effort, or a do-able one.
Is it sheer craziness? Thought appreciated.
