Approval from the slack-jawed, mouth breathing, sitcom-watching, pre-diabetic, non-exercising, soda-guzzling, phone-addicted, minivan-driving, Taco Bell-munching masses ...

Short of that, mere tolerance.

I once stopped at a tavern for beer & chili. I made it back to my car but I wouldn't have that combination while out on a ride again

Fish & chips saved me twice in the last few years. Never underestimate the recuperative power of tartar sauce. If you are ever riding MT 83 between Bigfork and Seeley Lake, make sure you stop for the fish & chips at The Hungry Bear restaurant.

I twice stopped for chicken fried steak with a large helping of biscuits and sausage gravy in the middle of two long days on tour. (Same place in Newport, WA two years in a row.) I was literally a glutton for punishment.

I stopped at a breakfast buffet 50 miles into my second century of the weekend yesterday--it wasn't very good, but I definitely could eat a lot. Meat, eggs, pancakes, cinnamon buns, juice, coffee, more meat and buns.

I've never regretted stopping for pho on a ride.

I was doing the Sante Fe Century a few years back and when I turned the corner somewhere around mile 40, I could smell the peanut butter about a mile from the feed zone. I love a good PB&J on the ride. I just don't or won't eat a lot until afterwards. I have spent one too many times in the bushes. Now, on the other hand, I will drink hot coffee before, during and even after with no problem. It all smells good after about 35 miles or so, one of my routes takes me by a Sonic, smells great, never tastes as good as it smells. never tastes good twice.

The pre-ride cravings are usually what determine my destination--"that sound good for lunch".

There are a lot of "unfair smells" on my rides. Sometimes it will be pancakes and bacon smells coming from a breakfast restaurant on a weekend morning or a pizza place in the evening. Makes me really hungry. When it is really hot out I crave lemonade. It is the first thing I go for when I get back.

Less than half a mile from my house, in the direction I'm traveling when many rides start, there's a donut shop and a burrito joint side-by-side. It smells like carnitas and donuts. That's just not fair.

I usually just crave a cold drink. I don't ride far enough to get really hungry. There was a barbecue place that smelled amazing at the turnaround point of my last ride. So wished I was hungry.
