Fruits are good too, I love eating fruit. Fresh apricots, bananas, oranges, pears, dried apricots etc.
Dried apricots actually have more potassium than a banana(or so I have heard) so they are good as a before/during ride snack to help protect against cramps.
Eat lots of complex carbs like bread, pasta, cereals, rice, etc. Simple carbs are good too(as far as I know simple carbs are sugars).
I don't really know what ratio of carbs to protein is good for you, I kind of just eat anything in very large quantities.
