    fitness and nutrition

    i would consider myself in pretty good shape. i was a division 1 college tennis player, so i've been athletic basically all my life.

    i bike to and from work every day, though not exceptionally far. and i play tennis all the time. and i occasionally do an indoor cycling class with my gf, she does it 2-3 times a week.

    i want to get into very good biking shape. i plan on competing in the red hook crit coming up and was wondering what bikers do to get into good condition. and what i should be eating or drinking before/on race day.

    i have no delusions on finishing in the top 20 or even getting to finish at all without being lapped out, just looking to be prepared.

    I think this is the last subforum you'd want to ask this question.

    I'm also planning on racing in the rhc. Just try to ride a lot and do intervals. I don't really do anything special for nutrition other then my veggie food and protein. Lastly I see your in NYC, let me know if you want to meet up and ride d00d.
    Who needs a sig....oh wait.
