Sharing recipes on the internet seems a popular activity. Here's my contribution to the mix:

Leave home at 6:50 a.m.
Warm up with 5.9 miles; include a climb up Bliss Road.
Meet Bill at the top (suffering enhancer - like MSG).
Steep in the perspiration of the next 101 miles.
Blend in a bit over 4,000 feet of climbing.
Add a dash of back and shoulder pain.
106.9 miles into the ride, start the climb up FO.
Roll up to home with a total of 114.3 miles for the day.
Top with a Lance Armstrong retrospective on Versus TV
...where he makes it all look so easy.

Sit back and enjoy - that it's over!

Why do the words dash and pain seem incongruous?!!

Sounds delicious, but probably not for every day consumption. Suffering (like chocolate chip cookies and beer) in moderation, or something like that.
