Why Do They Do This?

Postby FLATULENTFRIEND on Sun 27/Sep/09 4:03pm

While walking down at 10.30AM on Ponsonby Road this morning I saw four road bikes leaning up against a wall by a café. At a table on the footpath in front of the café were four Roadies.
All four of them had big breakfasts – bacon, eggs etc (more than a main meal for me).
(I’m a bear of little brain who thinks calories out + more calories in = weight gain)
Why?
Why go for a training ride, to get fit, and for most to lose weight(they needed to) to then eat a full meal again?

Better than no calories out + more calories in?
What if they (god forbid) actually like riding for reasons other than training?

Sure a drink (and bun?) and a chat = all good social stuff, but a full meal?

Were they seated in single file or all over the footpath?

Maybe they were hungry?
Why didn't you just go up and ask them?

maybe they were hungry. jesus christ, are people not allowed to eat what/when they want? i don't believe there is any official written law stating how much someone can eat for breakfast. and besides, you were the only one there, we weren't. how the hell should we know/care?

Whoa there big fella. That there's crazy talk.

Could be that it's just a really nice way to spend the morning and actually is something that makes the weekday grind worthwhile for them.

Who really gives a fuck, they're riding bikes and enjoying themselves while doing it. It's not all about BMI's and energy gels.

WTF this post is retarded even for you.

Maybe they were hungry?
Maybe they had or were going to ride 5 hours?
Maybe they really like bacon?

Who know or cares? I especially dislike your last comment. I don't ride for weight loss, training or to get fit, I ride for enjoyment. I could also happily eat a big breakfast any day of the week.

It's a Sunday morning, forgive them for indulging with mates. Big brekkies are tasty and fun. Road riding with friends is fun. Also a decent meal in the morning stops you from overindulging later in the day. Also a big proteiny, breakfast with bacons and eggs isn't as bad as a big "healthy" breakfast of a bowl of sugary carby cereal followed by some carbtacular toast covered in sugary jam.

And I bet they were surrounded by lazy fattyboombooms also eating the big breakfasts without having been on a road ride. You should be hassling them instead.

Where's the real problem... fit healthy people enjoying a nice sunday brunch at a local cafe, in the middle or end of a nice ride or the morbidly obese whose idea of a sunday (and any other day of the week) outing is a trip through the drive-in at KFC or Maccas?
