    Sex Before A Big Ride

    Just got my Bicycling Magazine mag "Sex" issue. As usual not much substance. One question they did not address was. What effect does sex the night before a ride have? Does it have a positive, negative, or no effect. What do you think?

    The runner's name escaped me, but about 20 years or so she set the American record for 1500 meters after having sex within a couple hours of her event. I have also tried it with great success!

    There has long been a legend among baseball players and boxers that sex the night before a contest has an adverse effect on performance. I think that it was Casey Stengle who said something like "Chaseing women caused more of a problem than catching one." Sounds about right to me.

    Don't think cycling teams have a position on that? In other sports, pro teams do, no? In basketball, only after the game right... Some all nighters? Man, the stuff you hear on the walls of hotel rooms...For a big mega ride..Hundreds of riders...
    The wall thumping once in Florida, caused me to loose sleep..At a large 15 k run that time...In Orlando..
    Aw, I never sleep anyway...Regardlesss....

    Only one way to tell: lots and lots of repeated experiments.

    You can't argue with the scientific method!

    What would you think wise...Had a great nite..Can't keep it off your mind...You are descending the Alpe d' Huez at 50 mph...Think you should forget about a hot nite out...Most could.
    Average male thinks of sex every six minutes..Probably pro cyclists teams ,just an advosary.
    Is it not College football rule, no sex the night before...
    Unless you are from Kansas, no sex until you are 30.

    I thought I saw something in there where it said sex the night before was a good thing, since it releases endorphines and stuff that promote sounder and more restful sleep.

    Or maybe I just made that up... either way, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

    Found a way to not get in a ride...Get doing stuff about the house in cycling kit.....Twice now missed a ride...Wife wakes upon before I get out of the house..She can't leave my 'Bonjour' britches alone...
    Gotta get out earlier...No doddling about.
    Anyone recall Bicycling Mag. poll says sex burns up under 100 calories and and equivilant time biking burns up considerable more...Don't let me burn up my calories more efficiently, maybe you will not want to 'bonjour ' me.

    For your sake, let's hope all the women within that 75 mile radius do not also consider you a menace.

    That's because it makes no difference.
