Looking for some advice on what to eat before / during / after a 100 mile cycle?
I’m on Amazon looking at energy bars, gel, etc but I don’t know where to start?
As far as I’m aware I should pack the carbs before and during the ride, protein for recovery?
I was thinking about porridge a couple of hours before, an energy bar after 35, stop for beans on toast after another 35 and a second energy bar during the last 30?
Is it normal to take a break for lunch or would most people do 100 miles straight?
I’ll be doing about 1k incline every 35 miles so probably 6hrs cycling at a guess.
