If the ride is less than 40 mi I use only Hammer Heed. If more there is usually a turnaround stop where I add a 16oz Coca Cola and a Power Bar. For a mountain century I add protein bars and carry powdered Heed to mix at rest stops. When the ride is over I always have a large glass of chocolate milk. My diet isn't that great making sure I get enough carbs and protein with a few vegies and fruit. It seems to be working as I am 76 and still can ride with competitive 50 and 60 year old riders. I try to do 200 mi per week or the equivalent with power meter intervals thrown in.
