Fiery ride

Yesterday my dinner was a mix of sausages, pasta and halopenos; you know, that kind of food that burns when it comes and burns when it leaves.

Made today's ride interesting too, nothing like sitting on a bicycle with your butt on fire

Yeah? I had a high fiber dinner one night, the next morning I got "caught" about halfway through my ride. Needless to say I set some speed records getting back home!

Try a Graziano's Grinder from Des Moines the night before a 40 mile ride. I am sure glad I ride alone, because I would have been embarrassed, and anyone behind me probably would have passed out. I know TMI.

I consider my morning-after gas to be a natural deterrent for people who draft behind me without announcing their presence. Otherwise I usually pull out of the line to let one go.

Damn near ruined my keyboard reading these posts.

I will admit to having an intimate understanding of all the above. I tend to be very selective on what I eat before a ride.

Yeotch, nothing worse than the burn on the way back out. Also, nothing quite like the cliff bar farts.
