Hey @jkorngold my Knight friend tells me the following:
My leading recommendation is that he EITHER get the no-handed riding skill OR set up supports on both sides of his rollers so that he has something to hold onto with one hand while he eats and drinks with the other.
Also have all foods pre cut into little bite-sized pieces so he can just pop bites into his mouth every few minutes and then get both hands back on bars.
We’d both say that a Knighthood quest is no joke.
Most people have done it on a trainer and it is hard AF and some have not succeeded for a range of reasons. Choosing to do it on rollers is another level of difficulty for many reasons (core engagement, focus, lack of respite, challenges with eating and drinking, sitting up to “relax”, getting out of the saddle for pressure relief, keeping the holy water out of your eyes etc). To test your readiness, try doing a few reduced intensity eligible vids back-to-back with an 8 minute timer (see how fast that flies by and what can get done in that time frame). Also, see rule #1 of the
