Me fart like trooper on way into work too...

Anyone else have a favourite cycling food or meal that makes them break wind whilst cycling?

For me:

Omelette = wind
Banana = stamina
Water = staying alive
Flapjack = Sugar rush

Generally, I don't have brekkie - just a coffee (skinny latte) when I get into the office. Tuna salad for lunch and an organic yoghurt, banana and apple at about 4pm. Then a homemade meal at about 8pm (after rowing, dog walking and cleaning the house up) - usually something that has been in the oven all day on a low heat (like lamb tagine or something veggie)


  • OK here's my list
    Red Chilli = wind +
    Sichuan Pepper = wind ++
    Apple Juice (cheap supermarket brand) = Sugar rush
    Rice balls = Energy boost

    By the way gtvlusso, what temperature do you have the oven at for cooking the lamb tagine?

    Is it just me, or is anyone else unable to fart whilst pedalling?

    if you stand on the pedals whilst farting you get a great tympanic response from your arse.

    people around can hear your cadence as you pass (and admire your odour when you've gone)

  • I tend to fart when eating my roast chicken and bacon with mayo rolls. Great cycliing food, and if I do need to let go i always go to the front.

    Methane has a global warming effect about 25 times that of Carbon perhaps the windy cycling commuters should not be so smug about their green credentials!
