Stage 7 – Eating

In this episode, Niel and Robbie talk about one of their favourite things, eating. What they eat, how often they eat, what’s their favourite Haribo.

Also they talk Tour Divide, GBDURO, Trans Alba and the North Cape Tarifa race

    Loving the podcasts. 😁
    For me in my emergency pocket/food bag it’s jelly babies and fig rolls. I know I can go a long way on those if nessary!
    Otherwise real food wherever possible and preferably savoury.
    Looking forward to dotwatching the TCR.

      Hi there Gill, sorry for the late reply, you’d think I was out riding my bike all the time or something. I do love jelly babies but I struggle with them in Dubai as they melt 😂😂😂. Now Fig Rolls, there’s a good one. I’ve never tried those riding. Might take some to Bulgaria with me for the start of the TCR.

      Dotwatching is always fun. I may have a few surprises in there too 🙂
