The best of luck with the cycle ride :)

I hope you are training wrapped up in lots of thick clothes to simulate the heat because it is up in the mid to high 30's C at the moment, way above average!

Magy, Have you been over for your visit yet? It is essential, I think, to know the route, terrain and conditions that your group will experience. You will need support vehicles and plenty of water stations unless the riders plan to carry the weight of the 6-8 liters of water they will consume on each leg.

Coming over in March will give you a good idea of the conditions you will all experience during your ride.

Good luck with your preparations :)
