Topic: General Sausages per mile

(link)

11:26am, Thursday 19 June 2008

As part of National Bike Week, my employer is offering free breakfast to staff who cycle to work. Excellent! Shall we do some sums?

My cycle to work is just over 3 miles. It takes me about 25 minutes depending on the prevailing wind and how long it takes me to cross a busy roundabout. That classifies me as a "leisurely" (a.k.a. "unfit") cyclist. These sources more or less agree, that consumes about 113 calories.

A grilled sausage provides about 118 calories, according to these sources .

This would be astonishingly convenient if I had eaten a single sausage for breakfast. However I actually ate two sausages, a hash brown and fried bread. I don't think my cycle ride home is going to outweigh my surplus breakfast. Oops!
