My riding has increased 'immeasurably' over recent months. I put this down to two significant changes in the way I prepare for my rides - 1) every morning throughout the week I prepare and drink a large glass of fresh beetroot, carrot and celery juice, and 2) I have begun to religiously put on right sock on before my left, my right shoe before my left, and my right glove before my left.
It is possible that one of these actions is having more impact than the other, but I'm not prepared to stop either for fear of losing my current velo-mojo.
Does anyone else have scientifically unproven or hair-brained routines that they can no longer ride well without? Or is it just me?
