Gauge where you are with your cycling progress by using one, or all, of these testing methods.
I am fanatical about numbers. I guess that comes with an engineering science background. I find that measuring things helps to keep training focused and gives you an understanding of where you are in your performance or fitness journey. I am a firm believer in the maxim, “What gets measured get done.”
There are many ways you can measure your cycling progress and here are a few, ranging from the simple to the more complex.
This recipe is decadent, creamy, and completely dairy-free. I know it seems impossible, but it's true.
Enjoying a decadent creamy dessert was an idea I had tossed away as unattainable when I first decided to go dairy-free. Many of the dairy-free confections that were passed off as ice cream were more icy than creamy and just couldn’t compare to my old favorite indulgence of a true custard-style ice cream. The smooth mouthfeel that we define as creamy can only be created with fats, so using a base that doesn’t have much fat, like almond milk, will not result in the same experience.
