It works for me, anyway. The high point of my ride (no stock in candy bars).

Maybe when I get out of my 50's, I'll switch from Clif bars to something more appealing.

Someone please make a chart of the proper dietary supplements as one progresses from 50-90. At 76, it becomes more and more urgent for me to know this information!!

I'm thinking that when you are cycling in your 80's you can eat anything you want. You have surpassed the threshold of study groups.

Besides the vits, I occasionally eat an Access bar from Melaluca. It helps convert the fat to energy while you are riding. I have lost over 30 LBS in the last 8 months. I find that when I eat one, my commute is faster with less fatigue.
