Slow & steady, keep building your stamina and the miles will follow.

I've built up to century (100 miles) rides in the past. Key is to take your time and enjoy the ride. When you're going long distance slow & steady is a winner every time.

Sounds like fun, but Iowa is pretty far for me to travel for anything shorter than 3-4 weeks on the bike; airline prices being what they are.
I'll keep it in mind though...

For those thinking of a neat biking challenge for 2012...........Think about doing RAGBRAI. A 7-day biking adventure across IOWA. As I mentioned several months back, it would be super to have a contingent from SPARKPEOPLE. Registation is now open. Google it and check it out. I did it for the 1st time this year and had a super time. It was all about biking and meeting some neat folks from all walks of life. I'll be square, but I'll be there.
