2,980 calories burned? How do you intend to replace all those?

That was him. He weighs more than I do.

So far: can of soda, greek yogurt, and peanut butter crackers. Quick fuel. Soon: real food.

why does competition anger you? I mean, I'm not a racer, I tried it when young and hated it, I just like riding solo etc too... but other folks racing in international events don't anger me. heck, I've volunteered as a course marshall for the last couple Tour of California's that came through my town.

its not competition, its using more resources to get from point A to point B then it would be if you didnt even bother with the race in the first place that ticks me off.

Do it real time, not controlled enviroment.
No SAG, no film crew, no sponsers, just man up and ride it

so you're dead set against all entertainment and sports too? after all, they use a lot of resources!

you extroplated that from what I said?

wow..

Not going to debate, its just fucking lame.

Get on a bike, leave from your front door and pick a random direction and ride for a few thousand miles without ever touching a hotel or couch and then I will be impressed.

let me try to explain. When it comes to cycling for me the entire point is minialism, the challenge is minalism. The Apex of cycling for me is to be able to leave from your front door, ride for a thousand miles and bring everything you need with and never using a hotel or the like. THAT is kick ass.

Having a car follow you with spare bikes and shaving gear while another films you is just bullshit to me. Its race that make no larger statement at all whatsoever other than 'we are really bored and cant think of anything better to compete over'

extrapolated from your 'waste of resources' remark concerning video, sag, etc on a professional bike race, and that racing 'pisses you off'.

when I was (much) younger, I regularly bike-camped a few 100 miles, but never thousands. My longest trip was Monterey/Pacific Grove to the Crater Lakes area in south Oregon, no hotels, I couldn't have afforded them. Now days, I'm a overweight 58 year old computer engineer who thinks bicycling 15-20 miles is good enough, and I need to (re)start doing it more often.

as far as random directions go... 5 miles west and I'd be swimming in the Pacific, my bike don't float. 500 miles east would put me in the middle of the Nevada deserts, not exactly a bike friendly place (assuming I don't croak climbing the Sierra 10,000 foot passes). 1000 miles south, and I'd be somewhere in Baja, also not a very bicycle friendly place. That pretty much leaves north for long trips. Frankly, I'm more into camping trips on my motorcycle, when family and work committments allow me the time (not often enough for my tastes).
