Eating while riding, what do you have?

A light bike doesn't replace good fitness.

I do the little Hawaiian rolls with peanut butter, jelly, and a touch of honey. They compress well in aluminum foil.

Rice pudding into a small plastic bag, chew a hole in the corner and suck it out as you go. If you use the chocolate stuff, the opposition think you've muddled up your food and the results of walking the dog. Another vote for fig rolls, too. When I'm racing, any event over 1.30 I'll make sure I'll get something down at about .40, try for every 20 minutes after that. Haven't really found an energy drink I agree with, so tend not to rely on carbs in liquid form. For a big day out, nuthin' wrong with a pocket full of cheese and marmite sandwiches.

I was also kind of hooked on the energy gels for a while. I was using the Clif gels with 100mg of caffeine. I’m pretty sure it was the caffeine that I liked.

I used to also take Clif bars with me for rides over an hour. Pop tarts were good for this too. They have the organic ones for cheap at the discount store I go to. Close to the expiration date, but still very good.

Now we are trying to cut back on plastic waste, wrappers and such. So I just drink some cold brew coffee before I ride (I keep a pitcher of it made in the fridge). And I make my own protein bars and wrap them in parchment paper.
