Tapering for July

phreakphreak Posts: 2,179
I'm heading out to Italy for the Maritona on July 4th. We'll be driving down there so will do a bit of riding in Grenoble etc. en route.

I was thinking of when to start tapering bearing in mind that there will be a nice bit of riding in the days leading up to it to build things back up again.

Then of course is the matter of what to include in the tapering period. Any ideas?

    What is the Maritona? if it's just a sportive, not sure you really need to taper.

    It's a sportive in the dolomite mountains, so lots of climbing. Around 135km in length.
