The Action Medical Research RIDE 100 series is a physically demanding event. You do everything you can to be in the best shape possible, so that when you sit on that start line, you know you’re ready. You should be thinking of your bike as an extension of your body and be looking after that in the same fashion. A hundred miles, or a hundred kilometres, is a long distance and only the well prepared (and lucky) will complete it with no issues along the way.
Trek, sponsors of the RIDE 100 series, would like to recommend that you get your bike along to your nearest Trek dealer for a pre-RIDE 100 machine check. You can find your local Trek dealer here - Trek Dealers.
Remember, luck favours the prepared! Have fun on the ride.
