I’ve been a Sufferlandrian for nearly a year now. I’ve been doing “proper” cycling for only a few months longer than that. The impetus was to do a long sponsored ride (organised through work) from Cheltenham in the UK to Amsterdam. Covid meant that wasn’t possible, and in the end we did a 4 day Tour de Wales in September 2020, covering about 360 miles. I’ve kept training in Sufferlandria since, did the Tour of Suf this year and have announced my sponsored KoS attempt for the day I turn 50 on 31 March this year. At least I’ll remember it!
Any tips for someone of my vintage? My main problem during training has been a really sore bum from sitting in s stationary saddle for 6 hours+. I think I’ve solved this with a gel cover. I have my hydration and feeding planned, and intend to reduce my FTP/MAP/AC/NMP to 70-75% from the start.
One question I have is whether it’s OK (legally) to include the running app in a video stream I might set up for my attempt. This could be either public or private - does that make a difference?
Anything I’ve missed?
