The Mighty Fig

(Click for larger photo)

Once again I have found an interesting fact while my Bicycling Magizine.
As you can probably guess from the photo it is
the Mighty Fig. Containing nutrients especially
important for today's busy lifestyles.
A quarter-cup serving of dried figs provides
5 grams of fiber which is 20% of the recommended
Daily Value. It also adds 6% of iron, 6% of
calcium, and 7% of the Daily Value for potassium.
And, they have no fat, no sodium, and no cholesterol.

Here are some other interesting facts:

* A chemical found in figs, Psoralens, has been
used for thousands of years to treat skin
pigmentation diseases. Psoralens, which naturally
occurs in figs, some other plants and fungi,
is a skin sensitizer that promotes tanning in
the sun.
* Because of its high alkalinity it has been
mentioned as being beneficial to persons wishing
to quit smoking.
* For many years the fig has been used as a coffee substitute.
The fruit contains a proteolytic enzyme that is
considered an aid to digestion and is used by the pharmaceutical industry.

Here are the two most improtant pieces of gear
that I use. Since I have been using clipless pedals,
it has made my ride more efficient. Using the
clipless pedals and shoes allows me to pull as
well as push while pedaling.

Cycling Hills


I was reading a post from my favorite cycling site, and stumbled uppon an interesting fact. Most cyclist do not think that attending the gym for a good workout will make you a better cyclist according to Marlon Familton, who is a USA Expert Level Coach. He did not agree with this, and neither do I ! I have been hitting the gym for the last three months, and weight lifting has improved my rides tremendously. It has cut an hour off of my recent Haleiwa Metric Ride. Also, the back problems, tired arms, and cramping legs I use to endure has been eliminated because of gym training. If you would like to know more about how to incorporate gym workouts into your active lifestyle here is the link.
