How many calories have I used?

Postby Mick F » 1 May 2009, 2:49pm

I rode out this morning and did 35 miles into Hilly Devon and back.

This afternoon I cut the grass in the back garden.

Yes, it is that steep!!

After all my efforts today, I deserve a few beers this evening.
How many am I allowed to have, to maintain my sylph-like figure?

Four pints.
Was that enough? Have I recharged my batteries?



BTW, hills are a way of life round here .....

That's Devon(England) over there across the valley.

Wow Mick, that last picture is stunning! Such a contrast to the scenery we have here, deep in the heart of the flat Fens. My idea of a hill climb is tackling the particularily large speedbump outside Asda.
