Buddies for slim-down tour Frankfurt- Paris - 05/03/16 12:02 PM

Hello, who has time and motivation to loose as much weight as possible on a cycling tour Frankfurt/ Main to Paris, maybe further on to Mount St Michelle aso.

Looking for Cycling Buddies, male/ female, aged 50+.Moderate speed on tour, daily distances 60 to 80 km, depending on road conditions.

Start: immediately, so that by early June some 10 kg weight are gone.

No extra luggage transport, so take only the most relevant things.
Accommodation is booked on tour, from Hostels (Bunks) to *****-Hotel, depending on availability.

Staying in hotels will not make it easy to loose weight. Loosing 10 kg over such a short time with 60-80 km a day only will be tough in any case. It at least would require some discipline when it comes to food wink. When I am on tour for 3 weeks with more than 130 km per day and many height meters to climb every day, then I manage to loose approx. 3 kg, i.e. 1 kg per week. However, I am not keeping a diet during this time.

Loosing weight in such flat tours worked for us when we started to camp. One night we cooked and one night we went for a dinner. Then we lost about 1.5 kg/week.

Hello Karin,
Did you take this bicycle tour?
The reason I ask is that I would like to take a similar trip and wonder if I could ask you questions about rout and accomodations.
Thanks,
