    Cheese and jam sandwiches anyone? What's your favourite trail snack?

    Went for a ride today on a lovely forest trail.
    Stopped for a picnic of cheese and jam sandwiches and fruit.
    Took me back to my childhood - a long forgotten treat.
    Anyone else got a favourite?

    Hmmm, I love chunks of cheese, and my wife's home made Ginger/Oatmeal Granola bars. No, that recipe is a SECRET, she won't even tell me!

    I don't usually carry any food beyond GU or Clif Bars, but nothing tastes better than a PBJ at a rest stop on a Century

    Ginger/Oatmeal Granola bars - sound great.
    Sure she couldn't be persuaded to share her recipe!!?
    Maybe I'll have to try experimenting!

    I realized, after watching some Alton Brown, that the big difference between a granola bar and an oatmeal cookie is the moisture level. So I make oatmeal cookies with a lot of dried fruit.

    There was a discussion in Foo about Sushi being the miracle recovery food. I don't care if it's true. I want to believe.

    everything tastes better with cheese. Even better if dipped in cheese and chocolate and deep fried.

    How about those scottish delicacies...deep fried haggis and deep fried mars bar. Evil but delicious. Only to be tried once and preferably when drunk

    Actually on a non-silly note, I find I cannot eat anything that is fatty. Fig rolls work for me, cereal bars too. Last week I didn't have any on me so i bought a cheese and ham sandwich and an egg and bacon sandwich. I felt so nauseous I had to take a nap to let it settle before getting back on the bike.

    Speaking as a Scot - can't say I've tried either, they sound absolutely stomach-churningly awful!
    I guess we really do have a bad name for our nutrition or lack of it!!!

    I'm sure only the tourists like me eat it as a challenge! Worryingly, they both tasted great but I could feel my arteries hardening. I'm thinking of cycling in scotland next time I go up there for a bit of golfing..just trying to work out a way of carrying a bag of clubs on the bike.

    Strong squash (not sugar free), beer, crisps, spaghetti hoops (ring pull lid) and sausages. I haven't tried proper cycling food, I doubt it's as nice as beer and crisps.

    i eat breakfast sandwiches before rides all the time i have a stomach of steel.

    PBJ seems to be found at most rest stops of events + fruit of some sort...

    I some times bring fig newtons

    Does that add much weight? How about a carbon stomach?

    PB&J and fresh pineapple. Lucky me a Publix is on my favorite route. A good Cuban sandwich post ride will do nicely.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    It's probably Reynolds 953, so it's really light.


    My innards are tempermental on long rides, so I need to be careful of what I bring. I've figured out through experimenting that I'm fine on a 300 cal/hour combo of an Accel Gel, a Clif Bar, and a half-strength bottle of Accelerade. I throw a couple of Nuun tablets in my plain water bottle, and I'm set. I used that combo to get me through a fairly hilly (6100') 108 miler yesterday in temperatures nearing 90 degrees.
