Remember that epic training ride that Loren Rowney wrote about last week? Yes – we said epic. Because it was a ride that merits the (admittedly over-used) adjective. Following her six-hour battle with gale-force winds, Loren treated herself to her post-training epic omelette. She’s perfected this recipe over time and calls it the ideal meal following a long day in the saddle.
