Hows the Cycling going you ask

Last week I started cycling to work 5K to the station and 5K from Euston into wok so that's 20K a day. It was hard pushed at first to get used to Cycling in London what with all the traffic and a few incidents thrown in where I couldn't declip from my clip ins quickly enough, resulting in some great photos for the Japanese Tourists. At the end of the week I was feeling great having clocked up 100K just from cycling to work and what with my Triathlon ride of 45K and a ride round the park with my lovely young lady thats a grand total of 165K, not bad.
I can only use the moutnain bike at the moment and am in the market for a fold up bike to negotiate the Train rules of no bikes during busy times but my PB for Euston to St James's Park is 11 minutes. 

Just from cycling to work my garmin has clocked it as 500 calories each way (Im having that checked as the iphone Map My ride clocks it as 300 each way) so roughly around 600-1000 calories a day from cycling to work, Not bad, not bad at all and it beats the tube

Hope you are all inspired by the sunshine and taking advantage of getting out on the bikes.  


  1. It's a good start. It seems to me that cycling is an effective way for you to burn those unwanted calories, right? But why don't your try and use some alternative natural treatment? It would be faster to excrete those unnecessary fats inside your body.

  2. I would simply say to you all “awesome information”link

  3. I have been getting a lot of useful and informative material in your website.weight loss pills

  4. Hey Russ,
    I know you get a ton of emails, so I'll keep this short.

    We have recently surveyed a bunch of people to see whether food cravings differ between males and females. We also made an awesome infographic to highlight why we crave certain foods (even though you know you shouldn’t!) The results are quite surprising!


    We thought the results and the infographic might be of interest to your readers so we had a quick brain storm to think of some content ideas you could do for your blog:

    1.) The best healthy alternatives to combat food cravings.
    2.) 10 foods you’d think are good for you but they’re not.
    3.) Healthy (or naughty) recipes to fulfil your cravings.
    4.) Top snacks/tips to get you through work/your day.

    Thanks for reading. Please feel free to use any of the resources and content within our post. Any thoughts or questions, let me know...
