I'd hope that's not all you're eating. Even if it isn't, that's far too many sugars/refined carbohydrates, unless you're riding for hours and hours and hours each day. Most of that stuff, like powerbars, are little more than "health/performance" branded candy. Look at the ingredients, high fructose corn syrup is at the top of the list for the bars.

Where are your complex carbohydrate sources? Lean proteins? Healthy fats? Supplements should be used as supplements, they don't replace real food at all. You need to get fruits, veggies, whole grains, healthy fats, and lean protein in your diet. Having all your food come from technically labeled and packaged sugar isn't going to help you unless you like highs and crashes and potential weight-gain and insulin sensitivity further down the road.
