    It really is not very appetizing! :-)))

      Dear Olga, this is no appetizing meal, but pure energy supply!
      The food fulfils the function like refuelling your car with gasoline in the gas station. The gasoline is also not appetizing :-D

        Probably I understand nothing in this question. But it seems to me a piece of meat with vegetables would be more rational energy supply. :-))

          During sportive load, the body needs carbohydrates for energy. Noodles are rich in carbohydrates.
          After sportive load, the body needs protein for muscle recovery. Meat contains protein and is therefore a good meal after the workout!
          Vitamins and minerals of vegetables are always good :-))

    Couch
    How felt rekambent under you?
    How do you feel yourself at rekambent on 600 km?

      The couch rolled well and is very comfortable!
      The typical discomfort of a standard road bike on long distances did not exist: no pains in the neck, in the wrists or at the backside!

    Lutz mit der roten Kreuzotter :-)
    :-) What different recumbents! What for the red tail behind sticks out? :-)

      Yes dear Olga, Lutz rides an aerodynamic kind of recumbent.
      The red tail has 2 functions:
      - It is a mudguard, which prevents, that the rear wheel squirts water of the road at the neck of the rider.
      - The rear light is integrated in the tail.

      Nearly 50 cyclists took part in the bicycle marathon. This was a relatively high number for a marathon with 600 kms of distance.

    Route "De Acht van Lohne"
    Das sieht ja recht liegeradtauglich aus. Bis auf das südöstliche "Zipfelchen" ist es doch eher flach. Viel Spaß beim Radeln.

      Ja Andreas, die Route scheint sich gut zu eignen, um in der Sonne zu liegen!
      Die 600 km haben nur 2000 Hm, die sich, wie du richtig erkannt hast, im südöstlichen "Zipfelchen" befinden.
      Danke für "Spaß beim Radeln"!
