Re: How much do you eat - on a LONG ride

Many thanks again all. Ayesha thankyou for the VO2 etc explanation. Rode another 100km on Sunday. Dumped the bagels. Got the porridge on the stove (sorry homemade strawberry jam - just had to). 2 x eggs. Had this with the big intention of eating sandwiches in St Johns (sadly on Sunday the shop was s...

Re: How much do you eat - on a LONG ride

LOL nope, no microwave here. Just and old range. Good news so far, is that reohn2's Rocket Fuel recipe works to the oven point at least with polenta. Licking out the saucepan went down well, just waiting for the final bake off. Changed recipe slightly, used dried fruit found in cupboards, polenta (c...

Re: How much do you eat - on a LONG ride

Many thanks for all the replies folks. Got literally a lot of food for thought with this. I had my first UK Audax booked in March - The Marcher Lord and thankfully the organiser has been able to change my 200 to the 100km he is also running that day. I was really looking forward to getting my 200's ...

How much do you eat - on a LONG ride

Cos, I bonked good and proper on my last 200km ride. Got to the 150km part of it too. Quite disappointed. No....Really disappointed. I had set off at 4am to get home by 4 or 5pm. I managed this easily last summer, with miles in my legs. At the 140km point, I could feel my leggies getting heavier and...

Re: Eating you own weight in food?

Sadie is lovely Mick, its nice to hear she has come out tops in the homing department too. My Dhoona, came from a farm, and happens to have a form of kitty cat dwarfism which is why she is so tiny, these sorts of deformities are common in Manx cats, who arent very healthy at the best of times. NO ta...

Re: Cretins with colds should keep them

I dont think Cyclecat, it was a work related meeting, more a personal one. Like your style Audax 67, pity you got caught with the germies. Cycling is great for clearing out the nasel passages though, a proper slug trail all the way into work when I had a cold. (soz if thats too much info, but there ...

Re: Eating you own weight in food?

How many sachets does she eat Mick? My boudior cat Dhoona, lives indoors, and tucks away 4 sachets a day. She is a mini cat, and is about a third of the size of a regular kitty. She is 8 years of age. I used to think she was a pig and a poor doer, but the Vet said nope, about 4 sachets is right for ...

Re: Loaning out your bike

What brilliant replies. Im not in on a Monday evening, and work has blocked all forums, so I apologise for my late response. I did get a brief glimpse before bed. It was frosty today, so no cycling as the roads are not gritted, so I walked the 6 miles into work, and thought about how to answer the e...

Loaning out your bike

A group of cyclists have asked if they can loan my tandem for a charity ride on the island. Has anyone done this before? I am happy to loan her of course, but what is something happened? None of my bikes are listed under house insurance. She isnt worth a great deal, but would be a load of hassle to ...

Recommendations bicycle cabling

As my summer gal is getting an overhaul before spring, after replacing her iron work, I am going to re-wire her... (my hubby is going to help me). The last time he built a bicycle was in 1980's and things have moved on a bit since then. I have never had to buy cabling for a bicycle. Recommendations ...
