    In its essence, a calorie is a unit of energy, so calories theoretically required by a rider to complete a ride can be estimated by length of ride, terrain, speed, HR, weight, sex, age, using an algorithm derived from best fit of data from studies. Probably not a million miles out in ideal conditions, which of course they never are!

    Well I did treat myself to a large steakhouse double meal from BK the day after the velo.

    I'm no dietitian, but I'd imagine you more than earned it!

    I was in two minds whether to enter this year, guess I have a few more months to think about it now.

    I see they're organising Velo South, starting and finishing at the Goodwood circuit. Anyone signed up?

    Gray - sold out weeks ago - 15,000 places and had over 35,000 applications - some places are selling tickets to the event if you can raise the sponsorship.
    You would have to twarl the net to find some.

    I hope they've actually asked the local councils and residents this time, before notifying them of the road closures!
