Eating whilst on a ride.

A post to stop you falling into the trap I fell into.

Before I went on the weight management course I was stuck at around 122 Kg. I’d be doing a 30 mile circular route about once a week that took in the promenade at Seacombe and New Brighton, Hoylake WestKirby and home. As part of this ride I’d regulary stop off at the kiosk at the pitch an putt in NewBrighton.
Here I’d buy a Mars bar and a Corneto (mint flavour) icecream, I thought I deserved it I’d just cycled 8 miles I must have burned that off just getting there.

This stop sometimes washed down with a Fanta was undoing the work of the next 20 odd miles I was going to put in, including Montgomery hill outside WestKirby. How many calories in a Corneto anyone?

That was then, now it’s a piece of fruit if I bother to stop and I’ll only ever have water in the bottle. I’ll have an energy bar in the back pocket for emergencies. One other thing, a Mars Bar after 10 miles in your back pocket looks like the last thing on earth you’d want to eat.
