The (often mis-)perception is that cycling is reserved for those advancing in years, but on rare days you might catch a glimpse of the mythical creature – a cyclist in their mid-20s. While running around interviewing pros at a recent cycling event, a flattering member of the public asked “are you training to be a journalist?”, to which I responded “no, I am one.”
“I started to look at food kind of like money. It became like budgeting. If football was at night, I knew I had to eat lighter that day since I was going to eat like crap that night. If I knew I had a riding trip coming up, that week was more light, and I tried to drink more water, since riding all weekend would definitely dehydrate me.” Once he saw that the weight was coming off, he had even more motivation to keep at it. Today, he weighs 205 pounds.
If all of that feels too restrictive, and you’ve got an appetite for more, then doubling up is an option – with two bike rides a day, or a bike session and time in the gym come the evening. Double days are fantastic, because you get two releases of endorphins and testosterone. It means you can get two hits in one day.
So this week, when I got a bike of my own for the first time in my adult life, I was pretty excited to learn the little secrets of the cycling world- the inside jokes, what’s revered and what’s reprehensible, everything about life in this facet of the world I had never explored before.
