training for a 2 day 170 mi ride

I'm training for a 2 day ride in October to benefit Galveston Bay Foundation. By far the most strenuous athletic event I will have done so far. I need to raise money though, so please consider helping a fellow vegan out. :D

I wish I had the bank to donate to your ride! But I'll post some moral support.

I think as a vegan, you will already have an advantage in this type of long-distance event!!!

The longest ride I ever did was 100 miles. That was about 6 years ago when I was vegetarian, but still ate a decent bit of junk food like bread and white pasta and pizza and ice cream. It took me about 7 or 8 hours, but I finished. The longest I had done before the 100 mile was a 45.

Although I haven't done any long-distance biking anytime lately, I know that my cardio now is better than it was 6 years ago when I did the 100 mile, mostly as a result of following a cleaner diet I think
