Signed up like a fool for the Tejas 500. Not asking for advise on how to train, as it's way to late for something with as much foresight as that at any rate , but on what to eat/drink on the ride.
Talked to the organizer and he suggested staying on the bike and going slower as a much better strategy for finishing within the 48hr time limit than doing quick sprints around the 26mile course and resting between. Given this, I'll be spinning on the bike continuously for however long it takes me to finish and/or fall asleep and crash (with necessary stops to switch bikes/tires/bio).
For those of you who have done these things, what do you use for fuel?
