    Pasta and rice with anything the night before or 3 hours before a ride is good. Energy drinks during ride. and a big fat juicey recovery steak with all the trimmings afterwards after a long ride [​IMG] !!!
    The exotic delicacies are optional.

    Rock,

    We are very lucky. In some respects we have better food than the originals, largely because of the quality of the ingredients.

    Kind regards,

    PP,

    Just remember by coasting down hill, you are just converting the potential energy you burned going up, back into kinetic energy due to your downhill speed! :) Excellent down hiller or not you are still burning it off.

    To become an excellent down hiller you need lots of practice going down hill, which needs in turn lots of time riding up hill also, that is unless somebody else assists in that regard.

    Kind regards,

    LOL, fair enough. Let us say then that I am focussing on the flatter bike paths, due to my not inconsequential difficulty in winning the forces of gravity on uphills...

    The laws of physics still apply, even if the pasta is just too good to pass up.

    Wow - reading all of these really makes me hungry! I'm just trying to figure out how to fit a big Italian meal into my day!

    I'm vegetarian (always have been), so my favorite meal would be a big plate of pasta with lot of herbs and vegetables and olive oil. Bread with dipping oils and balsamic Vinegar, a large mixed green salad...

    For dessert, something lemon (lemon cloud from Macaroni Grill :) and a capuccino.

    Yum!

    Any 16 oz. steak, tender, medium rare, lean. With steamed veggie's and 2 glasses of Merlot. EXACTLY what I ate out (her too :D ) with the girl last night. Only every couple weeks for optimal enjoyment.

    Brewed right here in PA. Really the only cheap beer I will drink.

    Not a Stella fan either, per se, but love the Belgians.

    Risotto with parmigiana reggiano and lots of freshly picked morel mushrooms. God, I love morels.

    Homemade chicken and dumpling soup...
    Thai curry, especially with pumpkin---yum. On second thought pretty much any curry.

    Oh, and gravy...lots and lots of gravy. On potatoes, meat, rice, jello :eek: Just seeing if you're still paying attention!
