Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Al dente pasta with super-garlicky marinara. (Usually a whole head (head, not bulb) of garlic in a single serving.) I add some to the sauce early on, but save two or three cloves for just-before I turn off the flame and melt the fresh-grated parmesan into it. And of course basil and oregano leaves freshly-ripped from the plants on my windowsill, and the overpriced Italian anchovy filets.
Friday nights are the only times I get to enjoy it, thanks to my whiny coworkers.


Also salads. I'm pretty proud of my salads. I either go with Bragg's apple-cider vinegar or make my own (but it's hard not to go overboard on the garlic.)

Well I usually eat during the ride or after the ride.
I go for anything full of carbohydrates like grain.
I usually finish a workout with a glass of milk or something with protein.

I discovered the answer tonight. During a longish ride with mah two buddies on Fixies, we stopped and I had a turkey/ham/cheese sammywich from 7-11. Then a muffin at the end. That was fantastic. I don't know how they could possibly cram 330 calories into that sandwich, though.

Post ride, Scrambled cheese eggs (4) with onion and bacon some salt and pepper to taste.
I scramble the eggs really soft then toss with pasta usually Penne. If my Basil is doing well
a quick chop of that on top.
