Also, as has been mentioned in other related threads, once you begin taking in nutrition during a ride, it's better to eat a little bit at relatively short intervals - every 15 minutes or every 30 minutes, depending on the ride intensity. There's nothing wrong with stopping to eat occasionally, but a solution that allows small portions repeatedly while underway has multiple advantages.
A thick straw would allow me to eat oatmeal without stopping and I definitely won't consume more than half a cup per eating interval. Once I worked out immediately after eating 1 cup oatmeal, I didn't feel good afterwards.
