I've been an avid cyclist for many years. The lightest I've ever been is a fit 190, when commuting to work, 22 miles in, 27 home. With me, there is a clear relationship between long rides and hypoglycemia/food requirement. The more I ride, the more I have to eat, just to be functional. Cutting back on food is not possible as my blood sugar drops into the 50's. (not diabetic). Hypoglycemia runs in moms side of the family.
In any case, I would like cycling to be part of my current weight loss goals. Today, I have time for about 100 road miles per week. Any thoughts of the type of rides that would be helpful?
This is me, 20 pounds lighter than I am now (at 195LBS):
