"Didn't have a pie & bun, but I did have a medium Mighty Angus Burger Meal @ McDonalds. I never eat McDonalds and usually have a tasty home made salad for lunch. OK, that isn't altogether true but I try to eat healthily every day. OK…"
"Yep. I am in Richmond & would be interested. There is the Thursday Night Ride from Henley Beach to Outer Harbour, but night rides are difficult for me. Bunnings or the Homemaker Centre is a good startting point. The Homemaker Centre has coffee…"

"I am prone to cramps on long rides. I take a Magnesium tablet every day and drink water with Salvital in it before & after a ride. Both are relatively cheap and available at supermarkets. It has helped a lot and I rarely get cramps any more."
there are a few strange coloured Bianchi's floating around...i was just thinking a red one might have been a bit quicker ;-)
Sportif went well - we averaged 31.6 over the 3 laps...could have been a bit faster if i had warmed up properly - i struggled for the 1st lap and got carried by the team. Still managed to take home the trophy tho, so that's the main thing.
Good luck w Lofty! It's a really pretty ride - focus on the view ;)
re the eating Vs weight loss thing - try Musashi L-Carnatine...it's helps to convert body fat into energy. Still need to eat though champ, or the body will start using muscles as food...and your heart is a muscle...
Low GI (e.g. Nuts/cereal a few hours before), and then nibble throughout. high GI (eg power gel, lollies etc) are great if you know you have a big effort in the next 10-15 mins. just make sure you have 400ml water when you have a shot...or else! : )
Yup - in the PACC all girls team this Sunday. I am going to die.
Hey - yup! That was me....pre-drenching! we got D-U-M-P-E-D on a few times.
Rode from Clapham/Mitcham (home) > CBD > Norton Summit > Balhannah > Meadows > Blackwood/Belair > home. Was only 110kms, but I think the cold (rain + stop starting) sucked up any extra energy I had!!
Glad the tips worked out! Everyone is different, but it certainly works for me!! I take salvital & powdered powerade in a mini Tupperware container with me for longer rides, and add it to water when I refill. Seems to help ; ) AND – i always eat if i am out any longer than an hour – ideally after the 1st hr, every 45 or 60 minutes i need something….dinosaurs & almonds work for me ; )
Hey Chris, managed to get a run with the all girls PACC team on Sunday (Williamstown Cyclo Cportif) - i kept an eye out for you, but didnt see you there at all! Will you be tackling The Range again on the 17th?
I get my Shotz tablets from Standish Cycles Unley, but they have been out of stock for a couple of weeks. That said - last Sunday i used a combination of Salvital (with magnesium + other good stuff) and powdered powerade (electrolytes), and this seemed to work well. Both are available from the supermarket, and (given it works) is a much better value alternative to the Shotz tablets anyway. For what its worth - I intend to stick with this combination : )
For a longer ride, i would take a very small tupperware container full of the powder to tip in to your water bottles when you refill them en route ; )
Hope this helps! worth trying anyway. : )
p.s. i take a magnesium vitamin/supplement tablet once a day regardless of activity levels - it is most effective when it has been in your system for a couple of weeks.
