    So, what do you guys generally eat through the day, when doing a lot of miles???

    Typically when training I eat quite healthily, cutting down on the lard. Today however, i’ve gone the opposite. Today so far i’ve eaten…

    2 crumpets (with light Clover)

    1 cheese pasty

    1 tuna/sweetcorn sandwich (granary bun)

    3 Fox’s Cookie bars 😯

    however, 💡 in front of me are 2 bananas ….. argh! colleagues just walked in with Twix’s 😕 can’t win 😆

    Go on then, gimme you typical daily intake 🙂

    I always pack a banana or two when I go on a ride, and also a cereal bar.

    Chocolate spread will give you plenty of calories to burn off! I don’t have anything fizzy, just plain old water does me 🙂

    I can imagine 🙂

    I tried the energy gel’s a few months ago and I don’t know if it was just a mental thing or what but they actually did the trick. 🙄

    Being overweight and diabetic is a small price to pay for eating anything I fancy …. racing career over and life’s too short! 😈
