Training has gone well – rode 40 miles and close to 2000 feet of elevation a few days ago and have tried to get out on the bike daily. I’m starting to get a bit nervous about all those miles on all those roads with all those cars and in all kinds of weather (though I’ll not ride in steady rain or storms unless I’m caught by surprise).
