Finally...a training metric I can relate to!

A recent update for the "Sauce for Strava" plug-in now displays this practical real life metric
It can cycle thru all sorts of food and beverages, and clicking on the graphic will take you to the "Calorie King" website with more info.
Please no comments on the ride "effort", I wish I could say it was a recovery ride...but I think we all know the true answer to that

I've been using Sauce for only a couple of weeks now, and I don't always see the "beers count" for some reason, and it's kind of my favorite feature, since it keeps me honest about how many beers I have AFTER a ride, since I can easily see how much effort it took to burn them off in the first place!

That's 4 8oz, LITE beer (aka water)
What they need is a conversion to 'Metric' (Festbier/Stein) ... LOL!

Side note: 20 miles and only 16’ elevation gain? Didn’t know that was even possible. Curb cuts?

Now back to our program already in progress.

It's a flat road loop with a wide bike lane along the Chattahoochee River, so not much elevation.

Clicking thru indicates they are basing that on a 12oz beer, 5% alc., @153 calories...so yes, in this case, some "weak sauce"

Yup, I most often drink double/imperial IPA's, and sometimes quads aka "rocket sauce", so I have to divide the Sauce count by 2, or 4.
