Raybo, can you please tell us how you had your Waterford set up? 26" wheels? What size tires did you use? Components?
My note on the game stands regardless. I don't know anyone who would be near exhausted after 13 miles of MILD UPHILL riding after consuming a 1900 calorie breakfast.
The OP asked for folks to play and post critiques. I did.
The assumption that half what you eat goes into metabolism seems unrealistic. Shouldn't it be more like 1/24 of 2000 (or an adjusted amount to account for metabolic changes) per hour, regardless of what you eat? Assuming an adjustment to 2400 so I can do the math in my head, this would be 400 calories before lunch, leaving 1500 for biking.
Played through the first level. Began the second level and ran into some completely unrealistic situations.
After eating a 1900 calorie breakfast I took off riding. 13 MILES INTO MILD UPHILL RIDING I'M EXTREMELY TIRED? Ate a 250 calorie snack.
34 miles of riding and I'm exhausted and loosing points?
My only option for resting is an expensive hotel? No stealth camping?
NO WATER? only drink option is a can of soda?
The game penalizes you for not taking in MORE calories than you burn. Weight loss in a huge motivation for many bike tourists. OF COURSE YOU WANT TO BURN MORE THAN YOU CONSUME.
Just my two cents.
