And chasms like here at Devil’s Churn…
All these Devil related names (trust me there were many more) gave me the idea for this blog post, so here it is:
Traditionally it`s thought that pride is the source of most of the other deadly sins, but in the case of a touring cyclist it`s definitely gluttony. That is why I have placed it at the top.
GLUTTONY: A touring cyclist needs to eat about 5000 calories a day. That means a breakfast of cereal, yogurt and a banana. Morning recess is usually some fruit and a Clif Bar and maybe some trail mix. Lunch consists of a couple wraps and some snacks, or a cafe burger or sandwich and fries. Then there’s afternoon recess. After that we usually stop for dinner groceries and have some chocolate milk, chips, ice cream or other sugary goodness (this is like the reward for the day snack). Dinner is the same sort of thing we would eat at home, just in larger quantities and we always finish the day off with a chocolate bar dessert.
Here is a photo of a typical lunch wrap.
