Doing 75 km "Ride For Heart" in Toronto this Sunday on a closed highway. Using Norco Cyclocross bike for it. I've read online different advice for beginners, but was wondering if there is anything else the community can suggest.
- Be polite and communicate intent with other riders
- Cadence ~ 70-80 rpm
- Drink/Eat a bit throughout the race not to reach the state of bonking and dehydration
- Have fun :)
Am I missing anything important?
Update: Thank you all for the advice. The ride went well and we finished in about 3.5 - 4 hours. Avg Speed was ~20 km/h. Highest recorded - 37.5 km/h :) I don't know how to pick the "approved" response because many people contributed very helpful info.
