    A couple of the guys I ride with decided to do 10 under the Ben


    10 laps of 10 miles in 10 hours!


    I have never done a race before , but I have to some time.

    I currently cycle 50 miles on road PW. 10-15 of road at the weekend, + 5 to 10 in the summer.

    I am reasonably fit and eat healthy, but would like to improve.

    Current diet in a day is:

    Porridge with water and sultanas.

    Banana and 2 x Satsuma (or similar)

    pasta with green peppers, mushrooms, (insert random ingredients here / prawns / tomatoes, egg)

    Wholemeal bread / toast. Beans / cheese.

    2 - 3 litres of fruit juice, water.

    I am not a big meat eater but like a bacon roll on a Friday. I'm not a big fan of Nut's but I think my diet is really lacking. Can you guys help?
