My first Convict 100

I am going to ride the C100 for the first time this August. I was glad that it got moved as I was not available for May.

So the important questions that I am hoping that someone will be able to help me on.

1. I am reasonably fit for a 50+ year old ... Ride twice a week for 50k plus each time and don't mind the hills.
Q - Do I need to train more that this for the 100?

2. I have ridden roads bikes for the past 10 years but recently - 12 months ago - bought a MTB and love it as a change up from the road bike.

All aboard Tristraining

In February, once I get back from overseas, Tristraining starts again. Just thought I'd take the opportunity for a heads up for anyone interested in doing a 100km event this autumn - you know, Capital Punishment or Convict 100. Anyone interested in doing a good, solid training ride for one of these two events, I'll be going to do several reconnaissance rides on the GNR once the course direction is finalized where I'll be practicing the course as well as rides in the Blue Mtns.

For those that aren't aware, just letting everyone know that Capital Punishment entries (March 15th) opened several days ago and Convict 100 (May 3rd) entries open tomorrow... so take the big step and make up your mind whether to do these great rides. The calendar is a bit hard to find on the site, but mark your attendance to represent the NoBMoB crowd here:

Fundraising in Convict 100, 2012

Hey guys (and gals?) I'm competing in Convict 100 this year (Dirtworks) for the first time. But then again, I'm only 18, so really it has to be my first time!

Anyway, this year, I'm doing it in attempt to raise money for the Salvation Army, and hoping to raise $5 per kilometre I ride. As it's actually 104km, my goal is to raise $520 this year.
