Pre-Carter Lake Cycling Preparation—What to eat before the big ride

I arrived.

I arrived.

Last Saturday, I made it..cycling all the way out to Carter Lake and back into Boulder. I took the main Carter Lake entrance in…slowly spinning through the cork-screw to the top of the dam and then cycling back via HWY36, which has known to make adults cry as they creep slowly up the 5 hills of ruin back into Boulder. How did I achieve this stunning pro-like performance? Based on the latest in scientific and dietary research from an evening out with friends on the Friday night before, red wine & cheese are the key ingredients to achieve unprecedented training results. I admit I was dubious and I already felt like I was moving with the speed and ease that would make any 86 year old envious (except for maybe in Boulder.)But I went all in. Doubled-down on the triple-cream brie, took a wedge from the Wensleydale (with cranberries) and slathered a lovely cheese/dilly combo all over crackers, washing it all down with a blend of every imaginable variety of red wine (grenache, termpernillo, etc.) that has ever gathered together into a single glass. Venga!

Need training tips on what to eat before the big ride to meet your cycling goals, like an upcoming Triple Bypass? Me too!

    Red wine and cheese? Well, I can’t wait to try that! How much red wine is too much though? Thanks for the tip!
