Tour de Whidbey

Today I started training for the Tour de Whidbey. It’s a century ride at the end of September. I can already comfortably do 30 miles. Next I have to lay out a schedule. I’m told it takes about 8 weeks to prep. Reading all the Lance news lately was sobering. According the the NYTs, that guy was in better shape (VO2 max) after cancer treatment than I would be after months of training. Ah, genes!
