Without the elevation gain, your height and weight and weather conditions, it is more difficult to wrap my mind around what nutrition and hydration needs you required. I tend to overpack on nutrition because I have bonked once recently and that could have been tragic. I find that just sensing cues is not enough.

I need to be at least sipping constantly and downing a liter bottle once every 90-120 minutes or so on warm days. I am 6'2" 200+ lbs and most of my rides are 100+ ft of climb per mile. I also consume about 300 calories per hour.

Congratulations on your self-supported century. I mostly ride solo and self-supported so I can appreciate the extra weight and planning.
