Buzz about Total 200
Best things about Total 200? Course... and volunteers. Awesome course re-design. Loved it... and hated it at the same time. Great views... tough riding. Volunteers were INCREDIBLE. Thanks! Can't wait until next year! (Did I just say that out loud?)

How much do I need to train for Total 200?

The short answer is that there is no short answer to this question. There are too many factors for each individual to see if they are ready for Total 200. But with the proper pacing during the ride most riders feel their training has been adequate. Generally speaking we advice people to have completed at least a couple century rides in preparation and various "double weekends" (meaning riding both days for a combined total of 150 miles). The other aspect is to do some of your training by riding in pacelines. This will make you more confident durign the ride and allow you to work with a group.

 

Are there training groups of people doing the ride?

There are no official groups but we highly encourage you to use our Facebook page as a resource to meet and join up with others to train before the event.
