Similarly plastic bag under the helmet worked a treat too.

I actually prefer riding my MTB on the roads. I find it more comfortable. It certainly isn't as easy a road bike but I cycle for good health rather than getting anywhere fast.

I hate to say this but a lot of those photos make the food look really gross. Yuk.
And I even have a very sweet tooth and enjoy the occasional cake - just have to cycle it off.

I doubt there is a meaningful weight/power measurement.
Obviously larger muscles are more powerful.
However I suspect that most TdF riders are in the 70-80kg range (154-176 lbs).

Should take no more than 5 minutes to knock up something like I have.
