Got A Light?

Ya ever wonder how those cyclists make it through three weeks of intense riding in the Tour de France? Well, Bicycling magazine explained it this way: "It may not be immediately noticeable on TV, but each racer carefully monitors the amount of effort he's putting out. It's as if the rider starts each day with a fresh book of matches. Each effort, be it an acceleration, a climb or time spent in the wind, uses a match. When the book is empty, there's no way to find more. It might help to divide your ride into thirds. The first third should feel easy. In the middle third, you can push, but be sure to leave a few matches to burn during the final third."
