Day 5: Manning park to Princeton
Today I mostly whizzed downhill. There was one big uphill. lots of beautiful scenery etc…
But I’m guessing from the last 2 days of blogging that you’ve got the picture. So today instead of cycling you have a photo blog of “everything the hungry cyclis ate today.”
I calculated I will need to eat 4,500 calories on average per day while cycling. Here is what I managed today…
Breakfast: 1x fresh orange, some black coffee and peanut butter on a roll/one slice of ryvita
Snacks on the bike: 1 x banana, a few dried apricots, a handful of jellybeans
Lunch: avocado on 4 x slices of ryvita (which does taste like cardboard but does also travel well), 1x fresh tomato, 1x apple
Lunch dessert: a scoopful (or 4) of chocolate trail mix. Next best thing to peanut m&ms. Nom nom nom.
Post-bike refuel snack: blueberry muffin. Swallowed whole. Good for repairing muscles etc etc.
Dinner: noodles (with donated remnant of spring onion added) and 1 x local craft beer
Dessert: fresh strawberries
Plus loads of water cuz it was a hot day.
Whatcha reckon? Pretty tasty stuff, eh?
