    100 milers

    Was thinking of trying to do one. Not sure which one. Of course....the bagger would only do a nue 100. Any other 100 miler would be sub par and not worth my time. Nothing but the best for the bagger as always. Thoughts?

    Only the best 100miler series bike races. If you do any others, well, I don't know what to tell you. I would consider others but I might need to get an appearance fee to show. The bagger is THAT awesome.

    Orange ape....your answer would be..........a lot.

    I've done 70 on a mtb. Was doing 50 miles at RP. That not even close to enough. Probably 150 miles a week on the road and 50 to 100 mtb.

    I also would like to do a 100 mile mountain bike race. But I don't think I could get the time to ride 200 to 250 a week, I don't see how anybody with a job could get that amount of time. Your numbers seem high?

    It's probably the difference between riding a 100 miler and winning 100 miler. Either way, I think you could plan on about eight hours of steady saddle time, sore legs, stiff neck, etc etc.

    Most my routine rides are under two hours, so psyching up for 100 miles would take some mental fortitude, I'm sure.

    Wildcat should be fun with great views but the Wilderness 101 and the Shenandoah 100 are THE best 100 milers...IMHO of course.
