So, this weekend, all around the country Tourists have been out training and preparing for heading off to Oblivion in July. And yesterday, at 6:30am, a group of bleary-eyed Tourists headed to Huntingdon Racecourse for 80 miles over the rolling Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire countryside.
Brilliant, crisp winter sunshine, excellent Wiggle organisation – a cracking day.
And to top it all off, 7,692 calories were consumed – that has got to help with getting the weight down – and just a quick tally of the small amount of energy . . .
6 litres of high-carbohydrate energy drink
8 large pieces of flapjack
3/4lb of jelly beans
3 large bananas
2 anti-cramp pills
1 cup of milky coffee
4 fig rolls
3/4 litre of post ride recovery milkshake
and a post-ride hog roast roll
Total calories consumed = 7,698
So, there is only one inevitable conclusion;
if you don’t want to put on weight, give up cycling and … stay in bed!!!
or this will be the result!
