Q: What should I eat the night before? – John S.
A: Stick with what you know. It's best not to experiment with anything you're not used to in case your stomach disagrees. A good mix of carbohydrates and protein is a good starting point. Hydration is often overlooked and it starts the night before so drink lots of WATER. - Matteo Dal-Cin

Q: How much should I be riding each week? – Claudia M.
A: This is different for everyone based on experience and daily schedule. Riding three to five times a week with varying exertion and distances is important to help prepare for the event. You don't need to hit the event distance in training but you should be slowly working towards it as your goal. - Robin Carpenter
