Steve Dalway’s Cycle Ride

Steve Dalway has recently completed an amazing bike ride between the US cities of Los Angeles and Boston, a distance of nearly 5,500 km. He and ten other cyclists took part in a trip organised by a company that provided a mechanic, planned the accommodation and route, and carried the cyclists’ bags. (4) ............ Even with these, the ride involved a huge amount of effort.

Steve had already completed another long cycle ride in Europe. (5) ............ For Example, he knew that on any ride, eating properly is important. When you don’t eat enough, your ability to recover after hard exercise is reduced. For this reason, he always made sure he had a large breakfast before setting off every morning. (6) ............ The sight of the hotel at the end of the day was still very welcome, however!

One of the toughest times for the riders in the US was when the route climbed high into the Rocky Mountains. By the end of that part of the ride, Steve had climbed and amazing 28,000 m in total.
