Gerry’s cycling top tips

April 20, 2015

Pierre, Gerry, Giedre, Bill and Dan are awesome. Why? They’re taking on Hertfordshire 100 this May and fundraising for Special Days. Will you join them?

With just three weeks to go until the big day we have some top tips from Gerry, resident cycling expert at Red Letter Days:

“Since we announced we were taking part in Hertfordshire 100, the team has been training hard.

As you can imagine, cycling 100 miles is no  easy feat so it pays to be in top physical form. If you’re planning to take on such a mammoth challenge training properly is absolutely essential.

(Disclaimer: there are 25 and 60 mile routes as well but, of course, we decided to choose 100 miles…)

Gerry’s top tips

Don’t worry, whatever stage you’re at, there’s still time to get yourself ready for the main event. If you’re pushing yourself to the limit for Willow this May, we wish you the very best of luck. Also, if you’re planning on heading down on the day, be sure to give our riders a big cheer.
