A light bike doesn't replace good fitness.

Water , KFC at the halfway point, then on the way back stop and get a kebab .
Once home refuel and recover with a bottle of Jack and a cigar.

Is there some kind of prize here for depriving yourself of as much food and water as possible during a ride?

Riding dehyrated sure feels like you are suffering. You are slow but at least you feel like you are suffering. A bit like turboing without a fan.
