I try and ride into work at least once a week. It is a 33km journey each way. I find the ride in is just fine, out of bed, glass of water or maybe a black coffee and I am away. I usually take about 1hr 20 ish.
The return leg at 5.30 though leaves me with an insatiable urge to eat for the last 10k or so.. proper 'I may well stop that bloke eating a burger at the bus stop and buy the remnants of him' all consuming hunger. :S It also takes an extra 15 mins quite often.
I try and eat a bit more on a cycling day but am concious I want to be burning cals not eating them so on a cycling day I would generally have:
cereal for breakfast
2 ham salad baps for lunch possibly some crisps and a 'pasta in a mug' type thing
good possibility of an afternoon snack dependant on what people have brought into the office, generally a biscuit or something.
What could/should I be eating and when to try and replenish my energy stores to make it home without this horrible feeling?
I tell ya I could have happily eaten dry super noodles when I got in last night.. reminds me of epic munchies!
Any advice appreciated.
