Feed Them Properly
There’s no grumpier rider than a girlfriend that hasn’t been fed properly. Trust me, I’m one of them. Make sure you have a slap-up breakfast before you go out riding. I highly recommend a double fried egg, sprinkled with lardons (chopped-up bacon), bung it in a baguette and smother it with ketchup. It’s the only way to start the day and guaranteed to fend off potential arguments ’til lunch.
