I pulled out a roast beef sandwich with swiss cheese on more than one ride in the past.

I am trying to remember whose musette it was on the ProTour - it was a giant sandwich wrapped in aluminum foil with whole grain bread.

I have said this before but you wouldn't dare have your team stick your musette out early or I'd swipe it. I remember when I was a young punk I swiped a musette from the hand of the National Team coach that was feeding his guys, picked through the musette and ate what I liked only to keep on riding. Little did I know that I was in his sights before that

That's a great idea.
You want in while it's on the ground floor?

Wait are we talking about cycling or women?

Ya I've seen the domestique, it's nuts how many bottles they put in their jersey! On our 100+ km group rides we do take breaks, but I just don't know what I'd do in a race.

@rbart - Are you riding outside at all yet?

Been riding outside all winter on the weekends. Looks like this weekend will be a right off. We have a bit of snow coming and the temps dipping down to around -10C are not my idea of idle riding temps...

I have some suffering on the trainer planned instead...

You're in Texas. That you aren't eating a double whopper with cheese, XL fries and a "milkshake" with an apple turnover dessert makes you a role model.

I practice eating while riding at tempo. When the climbs are 1-2 hours long I can't wait for a flat spot, and eating on a fast descent is not a good idea.

I bring a salad and leftover dinner to work for lunch. I (or more recently, my wife) make a big healthy dinner on the weekend. For example, this week was a vegetarian lasagne. It takes no more work than making a normal sized dinner. I use that for lunches for the week.

If I run out of leftovers, I make something the night before. Rice and beans is easy and reheats well.

I realize that I did not answer this earlier.
My situation is a little different as my wife is an NPC Figure competitor so we are always cooking healthy.
As Eric said just prepare larger portions and take it as leftovers.

Here are some real easy ones:
buy a 2lb bag of Tilapia, thaw, put on a pan with some salt and pepper, cook at 400 for 15 minutes
buy 4 sweet potatos, wash, put in microwave for 14 minutes

Once everything has thawed out you have four separate meals, prepared in under 20 minutes

I've been on rkwaki's wheel before when he "wasn't going that hard." Based on that experience (suffer, suffer, suffer, suffer...) I'd say 400+W is entirely believable. Some people have the genetics to go super-fast on a bike. Alas, I'm not really one of those people, but we just gotta try.

400w at threshold isn't that impressive when you weigh as much as an elephant.

For example, 400w at 200lb (90.5kg) is only 4.4w/kg. I think he said his race weight was like 180lb (81.5kg). That would put it at 4.9w/kg which is solid, but not really super impressive. I'm sure it sucks to hold his wheel on the flat lands though.

Don't laugh at 4.9 w/kg. T'is rather fast

Just think back to when he was 156 lbs and not that much "weaker"

He is super awesome btw...

The other thing to remember is that came after a year off the bike and losing 45 pounds on the way with little if any structured training.

And the final thing is that my strengths are in a sprint though I didn't really have much sprint data from last year.

Comments on supplements?

There are supplements out there that seem to have good evidence going for them like beta alanine or dare I say sodium bicarbonate, i.e. pooper inducer. Both act as Ph buffers. Not worth it?

When on the road with work I have figured out how to eat well. Honestly, there's a book in there somewhere. When I get to whatever city, I find a supermarket and load up. Generally speaking, the hotels I stay in have a fridge in the room, so there's somewhere to store my food. Here's a normal lunch.

Big plastic bin of greens. If I can find the "Superfood" greens with spinach, chard, rocket, cabbage, etc., that's perfect.
Carrot discs or 'matchsticks'
chopped onion, tomato and green pepper 'salsa fresca'
some sort of berry
some sort of 'Harvest Blend' nut/seed/dried fruit trail mix
Usually an apple sliced up (I'll get a bag of apples as snacks)
Small bag of some sort of meat that doesn't need to be cooked. It might be lox, fake crab, pre-cooked chicken etc.
Some sort of Olive oil and vinegar dressing.

Mix it all together in whatever proportions seem right the night before I need it (takes about 5 minutes). Everything fits in the plastic tub the greens came in. It's all ready to go when I'm leaving the hotel room in the AM. Don't forget to nick a fork from the breakfast room at the hotel. I've got a fridge or cooler I can stick it in when at work. At lunch time, when everyone is eating whatever food is provided, I bust mine out put the meat and dressing on it and I'm good to go. Last week on one day we had '5 Guys' burgers. There were probably 50 of them sitting on the counter for everyone to eat. I munched on my salad happy as a clam. It's a bit of a PITA, but entirely worth it in the long run.

I try to get out on the weekends but everyone so far except for one has been snowy and icy! Just making sure that im not the only one over here not going outside. I wish I lived in the mountains with warm weather lol

And to rkwaki : have you ever raced like nationals or provincials (whatever that is in USA, state championships (?)) or anything higher than your original city races? This makes me hate how much I suck even more now!
