Tough Ride, What's for Dinner Night Before???

Doing a tough HOT ride tomorrow. This is my dinner, big plate of spaghetti. Almost as big as the keyboard!...........and lots of bread. After the ride (5000 ft/42 miles) , I'll return home about 5 lbs lighter even after this and breakfast!


Here I go!

Projected temp tomorrow = 95 degrees
Heading out for a 200k with 6200' of climbing (lightweight by any standard, but it's still gonna be really hot and not much sun protection.)

Tonight:
grilled kielbasa
grilled bread with some butter
romaine salad with cucumber, croutons, olives and onions

I prefer Vince's Spaghetti but your looks pretty good too.. For me it seems to make more of a difference what I eat the morning of a big ride than the night before..

Pre-ride meal for long rides, are usually 3-5 Eggs over Steamed Rice..

Oh man, Vinces Spaghetti! I'm within jogging distance of Vince's. Good stuff but my thing is skip the salad and go for the bowl of vege soup instead. I love that soup and I hate vege soup, that's how good that stuff is!

I eat a cucumber everyday. Sliced wit red chili powder and garlic salt! Washed down by Diet Coke!

Steak, Filet mignon or carnitas the night before? I'm doomed!

I ate my first eggs with steamed rice... don't do scrambled!
.
I can clearly see they need to be over easy with lots of Tabasco!!!
.
also found steamed rice and canned tuna is pretty good too...
.
BTW no salt no pepper just rice and what ever I mix in... isnt food before a big ride or anything just the kinds stuff i eat...

Yeah it was a bad choice especially considering I hardly ever drink and red meat just sits there, ahh live and learn. My fav is chicken ceaser wraps the night before and pancakes in the morning.

I would also go with spaghetti and bread. But breakfsast is more important than dinner the night before. Carb up in the AM too. Allow time between breakfast and the ride if you can.
