From The Conversation: Tour de France: How many calories will the winner burn? “The reason they’re able to do what the rest of us can only dream of is that these athletes can produce enormous amounts of power. Power is the rate at which cyclists burn energy and the energy they burn comes from the food they eat. And over the course of the Tour de France, the winning cyclist will burn the equivalent of roughly 210 Big Macs.”

+ Reminder that I’m on the road this week (assuming my car gets fixed). See you after the holiday weekend. Have an excellent 4th.
