For the most part, cycling is a great way to lose some weight and get out and about with zero emissions. It’s tiring, but well worth the effort. If you think cycling every day is a tiresome process, you can imagine what kind of astronomical pain and struggles Tour de France cyclists go through.
If not, Polish cyclist Pawel Poljanski posted a picture on social media that shows what a cyclist goes through while riding 16 stages (roughly 1760 miles) non stop.
In particular, he posted this terrifying picture of his veins:
That’s just shocking.
And he seems to be used to the whole thing, because in the caption he wrote “After 16 stages I think my legs look a little tired”. No kidding, dude!
Shortly after the photo went live, it got shared over 13,000 times.
While some have given him praise for his commitment and dedication, others have asked whether or not he’s tired.
If I rode my bike 1760 miles and my legs looked like that I know I’d be tired.
Since Pawel’s legs went viral, the race finished, with British cyclist Chris Froome winning the Tour for the fourth time. I can only imagine what his legs looked like.
When Pawel shared the pic of his legs, he was 75th position in the race.
It’s amazing how your body can show in great detail the stress you put it through.
