Time is ticking down to the off of the inaugural RideLondon 100. Are you getting excited?
The hard work is done (or should have been). Further fitness gains are unlikely; by now you should be well into your taper period (unless you’re one of those machines that sees a 100-mile pootle around south-east England as a ‘rest day’).
So apart from relishing the opportunity to spend extra time on the sofa, what more can you be doing to help prepare for the weekend?
Answer: you could have a think about what you need to take with you.
