To keep your energy up during a long ride, load up on carbs the day before and the morning of the ride. Pasta is a favorite of many cyclists. Oatmeal and fruit is a good way to start the morning of the ride.
During the ride eat lots of food at the rest stops or carry food with you -- gels, energy bars, peanut butter sandwich, fig bars, bananas, dried fruit, etc are easy to carry in a jersey pocket.
Drink LOTS of water the day before and all through the ride. And continue to hydrate after the ride to avoid cramps.
Good luck on the ride.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. - Psalm 103:8
