…how hard is it?
I’ve been invited to a Sportive (there’s a shorter option of 30-40 miles) next week that sounds like fun…but I haven’t been on a bike for years (apart from nipping to the shops etc) and have never ridden more than about 10 miles. It’s in the Cotswolds so am assuming some hills but nothing too drastic.
On the other hand I’m reasonably fit and run two or three 10ks a week.
It’s work-related so I don’t want to embarrass myself. Should I a) take the challenge; b) be inspired to get my bike out of the garage, rack up some miles over the summer and hope for a repeat invite next year; or c) never think about cycling again?
