Here is the second advice column from 'The Master' - a local authority on all matters cycling:
If you've managed to get yourself a bicycle, great, if not then its time to beg, borrow or steal one, because from now to mid March is the time to build a solid cycling base.
For a 100 miles cycle you want a racing bicycle: it doesn't need to be an expensive, light weight machine, just a basic racer with proper working gears and brakes. You will want some comfortable clothes to cycle in ; if lycra is still astep too far for you, don't worry; choose your own sports gear but you should avoid cycling in jeans at all costs.
Your first task is to get out on the bicycle. Choose a flat 5 - 10 mile circuit on country roads with little traffic. Don't push it, cycle easy and get to know your bicycle.
