    Seems high in fat & protein and low in carbs to use during a ride.

    Also, if that's all you'll be eating it doesn't seem like enough total calories. If you ride 6 hours that's only 123 cal/hour. Although it can vary from person to person, recommendations for long rides usually are in the 200-350 cal/hour range. Of course you don't say if you'll be drinking anything other than water to help replace spent calories.

    I would get something with more carbs. In food or drink. After 2 hours your carbs are all used up and you must restore them.

    thanks, have a couple of powerbar gels but was going to save those for the metric that is on sunday...I have one on sat as well.....Sundays is a slowish one whereas saturday will be balls out as I am probably the slowest of the riders....going to hide in the pack and try and save a bit of energy.
    Water with nuums for electrolytes was the only other thing I was going to bring.

    Aim to consume about 250 calories per hour ... of whatever.

    I eat things like fruit, beef jerky, cookies, pastries ... whatever catches my fancy. And that 250 calories per hour includes the calories you get in your sports drink.

    Can't believe someone didn't notice before me but... that bar has trans fat in it, making it absolutely worthless nutritionally. Hydrogenated oils don't have a place in anyone's diet, period.

    I do the same thing except maybe 300 calories per hour. On a century it doesn't matter what you eat as long as it's got calories and some protein. Energy bars, potato chips, fig newtons, dried figs, dried fruit, Mars bars whatever. The idea is to get calories and energy. I happen to like Cliff bars, Mars bars, Coffee Crisp, and some Coca Cola..................

    Beware the 'Sugar Alcohol'

    I noticed your bar contains a fair amount of 'sugar alcohol'. This ingredient was popular when the Atkins craze was in full force. It is a type of carb that 'doesn't count' on the diet. However, too much sugar alcohol can do very bad things to your digestive system. I am in the food industry and had to taste several bars (6, if memory serves). I liked the bars and ate them completely rather than just taste. I didn't know about the sugar alcohol issue and ended up spending 60% of my afternoon on the toilet, wishing for death.

    I'd keep it simple and stick with a known bar.

    Best of luck,
    RL
