I really like the math on the "mpg" of human powered modes of transportation. Most avid cyclist ride bikes for adventure, fun and/or camaraderie. Since I become a grown-up, I can't remember the last time I rode a bike to get from point A to point B.
I ride for a combination of fitness, fun and adventure. The fellow that wrote the blog about human MPG was equating a gallon of lard with gallon of gasoline as equivalent human fuel compared to car fuel. The "real" cyclist that I know, which includes a few pros, will tell you that bike fuel is beer! Of course, these guys and gals they fill their fuel tanks after the ride.
Now, beer is not part of a sensible weight-loss program. However, the calories burned during competitive events such as the Leadville 100 mile mountain bike race cannot easily be replenished without consumption of beer and pizza! www.leadvilleraceseries.com/page/show/3098
The people that do Leadville races get 100 miles per beer!
