Things are going well ... I did 20 miles today, and it felt like I could have gone further pretty easily. I was tempted, but was afraid of pushing too far and being stuck a long way from home with nothing left to get me home. The next ride I'm planning (Friday, most likely) will be 25 - 30 miles, and I'm thinking that I should take a snack with me. So far, I've been biking on water alone. Am I right to think that I should perhaps stop for a little snack, and do you have suggestions on when I should eat, and what I should eat? I'm thinking eating about mile 20 should be good, but bow to your collective wisdom. I'm also thinking about a bannana or two, though again, I'm wide open to any and all vegetarian friendly suggestions.
Thanks again for all the good advice.
