Ride to Eat or Eat to Ride?
Yeah, I like to ride. Yeah, I like to eat. Do I ride to eat or do I eat to ride? It’s sort of like which came first, the chicken or the egg.
Some days I think I know. Other days I don’t. Last year it was eat to ride. I managed my diet and ate the right foods. This year, I’m eating and then using riding to “recover”. I’m still managing my weight, but I’m not where I was last year. I find that when I ride 3 or more times a week I am eating to ride. When I am riding less than that I am riding to eat. I think the year is getting better from a planned riding perspective too and that should help. I’ll finish off this week with 2 of my long commutes, each being 50+ miles of pavement, gravel & singletrack. I might even squeek in an extra dirt ride on my Big Mama.
