Just wanted to get some Feedback & Advice from other Cyclists.
As a regular bike rider, I’m keen to hear from other members on various things, that would help in keeping those peddles turning.
Last year I was able to do Tour climbs in the Pyrenees. One year on, I’m tackling each hill above 3% in 1st gear.
Lucky by some standards, I’ll grant you, but I’m keen to hear what other people are doing in relation to Nutrition & Bike Setup.
I’m still averaging ± 14mph over a 35 mile ride, with the occasional 50 or 60, for good measure.
I have an obvious weakness in both legs now, but it’s my right leg, which is probably 50%, of what it was last year.
I do the usual porridge & bananas beforehand, nuts, energy bars, cake, water during, and a healthy dose of milk when I’m finished. In fact, I’m drinking a lot more of this ‘super food’ now. ± 1.5 litres p/d.
I now have a bottle on the bars, so don’t have to worry about reaching for a drink (balance), and a snack bag on the crossbar, so the need to stop, apart from the obvious comfort breaks, and to swap water bottles, is not a real problem.
I can eat & drink to my hearts content. But, is there more I could be trying ?
Unlike walking, which is a mission in itself. A 30 minute mow of the lawn, and I need a sleep.
I would urge anyone to take up cycling.
Your legs will feel so much better for it !!
Interested in any advice you can give
