pre race food? how to get energy for mt biking

i was thinking because you need carbs and fiber, mabey a bowl of mini wheats with a load of honney on it? anything to eat on the go to get some extra energy? i only want to know stuff i can eat from home because energy bars dont last me long, i usually eat them when im bored and not even biking

I like IHOP's multi-grain pancakes with egg beaters(egg whites).

Peanut butter and honey sandwiches, on what every kind of bread you like. I make these for a treat when Wife and I are done riding a long distance, say twenty miles. (I'm not a long distance kind of person). Maybe we should eat them BEFORE the ride, eh?

Depends on the Ride length. If out for only a couple of hours, then a breakfast of some description will suffice. If out for a 4 hour- then anything that is Carbo- hrdrate as a snack during the ride will assist. Cereal bars- Dried fruit- even a sandwich. Now if you about to do that special long ride or you mean to hammer it--Then start carbo loading a week before- Plenty of pasta- rice- bread- potatoes etc will build up the Carbo hydrates in the body and will last for a few hours into the ride.

Best out of the lot is to do a good thrash to a Cafe- Have breakfast there and a steady ride home.
