    Hello From Canyon Lake CA..

    Hello,

    I am a new rider, and I love it. I am riding in the MS ride on the 16/17 Oct in Ventura CA.
    I rode 33 miles this weekend up mountains roads. I ran out of energy toward the end.
    Is there a way to keep my energy consistent? Someone told me to eat a lot the day before?
    thanks
    Michelle

    Welcome Michelle.
    This is the Introductions forum. You may not get many replies. Try posting in the General Cycling forum.

    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.
