New Road Bike

Tomorrow I pick up a Trek 1.5 road bike at the Bike Barn in Lunenburg. Al recommended it as a good road bike to train on, while I get back in shape from the winter. I would like to participate in the Paris-Brest-Paris randonneur in 2015 on a tadpole trike, like the one below.

Paris-Brest-Paris is a 1200 km self-supported ride that must be completed in 90 hours or less. I know I would never finish on a traditional bicycle, but believe it would be possible on a trike. Having read the experiences of others, I am excited to begin training for this long distance event. So if you see me struggling up a hill in the county somewhere, please give me at least a meter of separation, and understand I hope to speed up on the downhill side.
