The Paceline Podcast #52

Padraig has migrated south for the winter .. Winter Press Camp that is. He has the latest and greatest in road and gravel, including an eye-catching bike from a new company with a new approach to the bike biz.

One of the most common questions an experienced cyclist hears from the novice is: how do you sit on that hard seat? The answer is usually circles back to the chamois. But on this show we ponder the pad-less ride. Lets see how tough our sit bones really are.

One of the first companies to explore the relation between water and gut and blood was Osmo. The hydration company nearly cramped up and pulled out of the race. But it has been rescued thanks to the man who wears the rainbow jersey and another who has worn all sorts of hats in the bike industry. Padraig talks with the head of Osmo.

    Rapha sales – They also had one last summer, before all the buyout talks. So I didn’t take it as a bad omen this time…picked up a few things both times.

    When I travel I do the following. I have a small pot a burner (metal grate ~ $3) and five tea candles. I can send a link if you would like. My diet is typically fruit and nuts in the morning. Then rice and fish and frozen vegs in the afternoon and night. Supplement with dates and walnuts.

    If I can’t bring the pot for some reason. I look for the simplist sushi bar that will sell only plain white rice. And then and things later.

    Fatty, For diet, I don’t eat out. I go to the grocery store and buy what I need for the week. I eat in my room.

    I commute to work on my road bike 23.5 miles each way–no chamois.
    On some Saturdays, when over 230 miles/week is not enough, I will go on 50-70 mile road rides—no chamois

    I only wear padded shorts if going over 70 miles

    When I’m on the road and I want inexpensive healthful eats I go to a Whole Foods if there’s one in the area. They have a self-serve buffet including a salad bar. It’s all healthful, of course, and as in any case, one can still over-calorie, but their healthful menu makes it easier to keep in limits. And the food is really good, despite being healthful.

    It’s also great for after-ride scarfing. I like to splurge on their mac ‘n’ cheese and teriaki chicken after a ride.
