Looking at participating in a century this fall and started my weekly training but have some concerns about food intake and what types of food. Having read the forums I see where drinking water throughout the ride is extremely important and I got that figured out but the food intake is what is troubling me. Many of the forums stated to eat 200 or so calories per hour to maintain the energy and that is good but what do you eat.
What would be a good sample breakfast to have 2 hours before the ride and what should be eaten during the ride itself. Looking for ideas on what has and hasn't worked for members in the past.
Greatly appreciate any input and guidance.
