    That's the one Psychotext. Looks like it's 14km shorter. See? Just posting about it has made it even easier!
    That looks grand. If you're not used to riding long distances then I'd get out there and start to steadily build up your distances.

    If you're a runner then your aerobic fitness should be good, but you'll need to work on cycling specific muscle groups, and it might be worth doing some core strength and flexibility work too so you can stay comfy and efficient while sat on the bike.

    Also, long rides let you understand how much/when to eat (pretty fundamental on a ride of that length) and what you like/your stomach can tolerate. Failing to fuel yourself is a pretty common cause of long rides changing from fun to not fun.
