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...

I'll give it a try. Meanwhile, I have a few strawberry chocolate rice bars I might give a shot. Tastes great but fairly expensive to me if I'm going to eat lots of it in a ride.

The voice of reason. But I won't be able to eat the whole bottle of oatmeal in one sitting. That means multiple stops.

I found a sports bottle with thick straw in aliexpress. Should allow me to...

Great info posted on milk. I found oatmeal with modest amount of milk + sugar is great for refueling AFTER a workout session.

I definitely notice I'm significantly faster and less tired on cooler temps at under 85F. For sure, there is less oxygen in the air at higher temps so maybe helped force adaptations to the blood and...

Thanks. I suspect out in the road, the temperature could even be higher than the weather report because the road tends to absorb and radiate the heat.

Might be prudent to attach a thermometer at...

Will do that when my time frees up, thanks. I'd probably just end up bringing three two bottles of drink, one bottle for wetting my shirt, and strawberry jam sandwich.

Strawberry jam have always...

Coke sounds good! Sounds like a good incentive to bring my insulated pannier bag to keep my drinks cold.

Bad idea to pour cold water on my shirt though?

I thought just 1 bottle of drink with carbs and electrolytes would be enough in >90F riding temps for three hours

Didn't think that's a huge deal until Ghostrider talked about temperature. I know it's important enough for me to avoid riding between 8am and 4pm. One time I rode 11am, high noon sun, temperatures...
