    I would grab something light, usually a bar of some kind. Kelloggs Nutrigrain are small. Have a fifteen minute drive to an hour train ride before biking to work so I don't need to eat on the bike, and don't on short rides. For the commute I often get up early enough to start a pan of steel cut oats to simmer while I shower and shave.
    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    I break my fast when I get to work. Usually a Clif bar with McD coffee.

    You're too kind, to make an old man feel good. So, the list of things one may find to eat on a bike continues:

    This is as much fun as bicycle haiku. Poor BForumers think we're crazy; but that clip with the croissant got to me. No coffee left?

    The Clif peanut butter (or favorite flavor) are pretty darn good. Coupled with the kick of Mc' dees coffee, you are on to something!

    +1 My first thought as well.
    Any information, no matter how good, will always under-represent reality.

    I would rather sacrifice some sleep, get up earlier, and eat a proper breakfast. I don't find it easy trying to ride with one or no hands while eating something, especially in the winter. As a last resort I will chomp down on protein bar quickly before I leave.

    I usually stop at a local breakfast place on the way and have my coffee and eggs, then finish the remaining 2 miles out of 11.

    I pack everything the night before ... Lunch, clothes and work items. So in the morning I start the coffee pot, toast a bagel and get bike out of garage. Then while loading the bike I eat the bagel and drink some orange juice. Strap thermos to rack and off for my 5 mile ride. I finish breakfast at my desk, oatmeal or bowl of fruit.

    Go to bed half hour earlier; get up half hour earlier. Plenty time to eat breakfast at home.
    Cycling in traffic deserves you full attention. So does eating breakfast.

So I was thinking about whether I might be able to eat on the way. I usually eat peanut butter or cheese on toast, along with an apple or some other piece of fruit; most of my ride is on quiet residential streets, but occasionally I'd need to put the food down and ride two-handed in traffic for a few blocks. Does anybody do this? If so, what do you eat? Do you have some kind of food-holder arrangement on your handlebars?
    I am good for up to 40 miles on an empty stomach -- not counting the essential nutrient of coffee with no sugar but milk. On my ride mornings I make my breakfast the night before and put it in one of my bottle cages in the morning. Smoothie with whole milk, unsweetened cocoa powder, whey powder, sometimes blackberries, strawberries, blueberries or a banana. I get queasy as hell unless I wait till after the ride to drink this and then it tastes wonderful.
