    Before we all start repeating ourselves with the same answers we've given to this question many times before .... how about you read through the numerous threads about on-bike nutrition in this forum?

    When doing long distance rides I find it easier if I put many of the calories into my water, I prefer maltodextrin mixed with a little bit of Gatorade. I can get 600+ calories in 24oz of water if I want to though I usually stick to 200-400 considering I drink about one bottle an hour here in the desert. I'll also take along a granola type bar for some real food. If I really think I'll need the calories I'll also take some homemade gu.
    I'm gonna throw in my 2 cents. Not because I'm an expert but because I have a keyboard. -canam73

    I heard wine is good for you and is high in calories. However, after a bottleful, I can only go in circles like NASCAR

    Just kidding, I use the Hammer endurance drink stuff. If I am eating solids, I prefer to get off the bike and enjoy the scenery.

    I use four scoops Hammer Perpetuem and six (tiny) scoops of Endurolytes for every two hours, plus additional water to get to where I want to be on fluids. Works amazing.

    On rides longer than 2.5 hours, I find it best to be "off the bike" and eat something at a rest stop. Long rides does not mean you have to be on the bike all the time.
