I have signed up to do the VanIsle "Eau de Hell Week" in early April:
It's a whole Super Randonneur series in a week!
I'm on pace with the training ... that part is OK .... but I have been thinking about how I'm going to handle the sleep/eat/etc. aspect between the rides. I will be in a motel, so I've got more options than I would if I were camping.
There are 4 rides ... a 200 km, 300 km, 400 km, and 600 km. If I take the maximum allowed time for each, I'll have about 10 hours between the 200K and 300K, about 27 hours between the 300K and 400K, and about 20 hours between the 400K and 600K.
I'm tempted to bring along a protein shake mix to consume between the rides. I'm not a big fan of meat products, but some extra protein would probably be a good thing.
I'm also debating about bringing things like heating pads, ice packs, menthol gels to rub onto sore muscles, etc. Does anyone know of some sort of bath salts which aid in muscle relaxation and that sort of thing?
Any other suggestions?
I aim to do some heavy duty pampering between rides!!
