Re: Couscous - Do You Use It?

I found it cost a lot less than a ready made cycle and it has the stuff I required for mixed ground riding (morland track and roads) so very bespoke for me. My son has also done the same for his cycle, using new dis...

Re: Diabetes & Cycling

T2 for over 12 years, reversed it (no longer T2) was on meds for it (metformin). Did that by following a Keto diet and intermittent fasting ( since april 2020) I am now 35lbs lighter since then although that is not my total body weight change.
I have heard that this could also help those with T1.
