How Much Caffeine Is Too Much?
Auckland cycle courier legend Wade Rose exists on a diet mainly consisting of muffins, cigarettes and coffee. While the effects of the first two are fairly well known; muffins provide a tasty snack and tobacco offers cancer and other nasty diseases, the effects of coffee specifically caffeine - come under much debate. Wade sets his daily coffee quota as, "no less than five cups, no more than >>
Why is it so hard to find good cycling coverage in the media
Being a Pom, I am often accused of being a whinger, even though I try my utmost to avoid complaining to avoid being bracketed in that stereotype.
