Seattle to Portland - First Time
I'm about to do this 200+ mile ride this weekend, probably in two days but possibly in one. It's a very well supported ride with free food stops about every 20-30 miles or so with other food stops possilble in between.
I'm thinking I'll start of with a three-hour bottle (6 scoops) of Perpetuem, a Carb-Boom gel and a Powerbar on the bike and then pick up whatever looks good at the free food stops, only using the on-bike resources as I feel necessary.
For hydration I'll have either Gatorade or G2 in the other bottle. I could take my Camelback, but with so many stops available, I don't think it will be necessary. I'll also have a few Endurolyte caps available if it gets hot.
Any suggestions, alternatives, warnings, etc.?
