  1. The Unfit Family did a 25 mile leisure ride over to Hingham & then back home today. Had a light late
    lunch at the cafe there - I was good as I had beans on toast (no spread on the bread) and the men
    had a sausage roll followed by chocolate & kumkwat torte with ice cream. I refrained from dessert
    and had a banana when we finally got back home. On the way back we got caught in a shower, but we
    had our waterproofs with us so it wasn't a problem. As I pulled into the driveway at home I
    swallowed a fly - I don't think I'll die ;-)

    I did my 50 mile loop through Garforth, Barwick, Scholes, Thorner, East Keswick, Harewood, Pool,
    Otley and back home through Leeds. Got caught in the rain on two occasions one of which was hail,
    dried off in between, my rain jacket does not keep me dry just a bit warmer. No stops for beans or
    sausages or kumkwat torte or any other ravataillement. Still the Great Cycling God owes me a few
    favours now. An enjoyable ride all in all, I seemed to be going pretty well.

    One bit of research does not a good case make

    Helen,

    You might not have enjoyed your bike ride so much today either. I briefly tried the Atkins diet, but
    found it left me without much energy and with tired, heavy legs. Not ideal for cycling ):

    It's a good feeling when you feel as though you've had a good 'jaunt'.

    I did a cool 50 miles today, up to Ealing and back to see brother/wife and nephew. I was able to
    maintain a steady cadence all the way, and felt reasonably strong. Three years ago I was on over 20
    a day and doing bugger-all exercise. Today I've packed up smoking and can pedal a bit here and
    there. Suits
    me.

    I'm convinced a good night's sleep is as good a preparation as anything to feeling 'capable' when
    exercising.

    Too many calories in a whole one.

    I thought I was - erm - pointing out a discrepancy in your allusion.

    Serious point where none intended: Always read the label. Atkins' diet was designed to for those
    with an essentially sedentary lifestyle. Modifying it to provide the carbo required for cycling or
    whatever is a bit like modifying a detox diet by adding alcohol and coffee.

    Me, I swear by the old-fashioned EH diet. It works.

    Unfit? How many really unfit people could manage to ride 25 miles? My family would be knackered
    doing it in the car! Keep it up and promote the English sausage.
    P.S. I was at Fort Bill for the World Cup. It was bib short heaven. You should have been
    there. Or not.

    This one does - I cycle *slowly* ;-)

    >My family would be knackered doing it in the car! Keep it up and promote the English sausage.

    Thank you - start off on very short distances & gradually work up. I just love cycling - wouldn't
    get me in a gym for love nor money though!

    Or not, I think ;-)

    My wife intends to join me on a 30 mile ride next weekend, so hopefully at least one. Mind you, she
    has observed that looking after a toddler has made her a lot fitter than she was 6 months ago. Last
    weekend she had no trouble with a 16 mile ride, a distance that previously would have been a
    challenge.

    Dangerous ground ;-)
