Reading the title, and noting the forum, I expected the thread to be about how to train for 6 Gap. My smart-aleck answer was going to be start riding one gap, then two gaps, and keep on going until you can over six gaps.

While I haven't done that ride, the people I know who have done it report there's a lot of long, steep climbing (and it gets longer and steeper as the day goes on, or the more you re-tell the story). So my constructive contribution is to echo what others have said, see about lowering your gearing. Your knees will thank you!
