an hour in the saddle.....a 80kg cyclist pedalling at 16 mph for 1 hour burns 892 calories, which is equivalant to 3.2 mars bars OR4.9 pints of beer OR9.4 bananas


did you know?..... the average weight of the human head is between 4 and 5 kilos. for an 80kg rider that equates to over 6% of total body mass


top tip....timing your route can help you keep track of your fitness, but dont don't try to beat your time every day

37,000, total fleet of bikes owned by the royal mail

choose a sports drink that has no more than 8 grams of carbohydrate in 100ml

despite what people say, skipping meals will have no effect on weight loss

positioning the brake lever hoods slightly higher will encourage a more upright riding position as you will spend a considerable amount of time with your hands here
