Training is a very important part of the SMART Ride! Sure we are here to raise a boatload of money, but we still want you to be able to participate in the event with as little difficulty as possible! And of course, no one wants sore muscles and saddle sores. Everyone has their own training methods/schedule. Find a model training schedule and tips here: SR10 Training Schedule. It's always best to train with a group. You keep each other motivated, and it is SAFER! And of course, always wear your helmet, and have water and/or Gatorade with you to keep you hydrated!
