Not at all if you're moderately fit.
Pay good attention to hydration and fuelling before, during and in particular after the ride. Stretch. Get plenty of sleep. Simples.

its all in the head !

and if your careful about what you do during the week then you`ll be fine

my missus is a pain - she wont let her body recover and wonders why shes still gubbed the week after !

Dragon is Jne 6th Merlin is July 4th.Both are quite arduous rides
plenty of climbing.I have ridden the whole of the Merlin Route and part of the dragon.

Personally I wouldnt want to do two in 7 days but only you know how fit you are and how qickly you recover.
