Do not ride from one day to the next.

Focus : Ride to a target distance that is half the distance of the cycle you are preparing for.

Warm-up #1:

Rhythm is key. Stay in Zone 1-2. This may seem very easy to achieve at first, but be disciplined and stick to your zones.

Fine-tune your nutrition and hydration strategies during this outing.

There may come a time when you want to go out with friends or members of a cycling club. It's great and you'll learn techniques for riding in a peloton and/or group, but don't be pushed to ride at a pace that's too fast for you.

And our nutrition advice to help you perform:
