I useit to use gels / bars / sports drink / nuun for all my long rides

now I use some sports drink, but also regularly use orange/grapefruit cordial, hot x buns, malt loaf, marmalade sandwiches, etc. I carry a couple of gels for emergencies.  Diluted coke works well for sports drink replenishment on the go.

I make rice cakes from a book called 'feed zone portables' - lots of real food ideas in there

I generally buy gels / sports drink in bulk when various sites have sales

It better be a good book, I have ordered It today in prep for Outlaw fuel 


I think its better for training than for racing

Helpful heads-up on the fig rolls, thanks.  55p and they helped adequately fuel me for century ride yesterday (supplementing flapjack and sports drink).  Now to find a way of carrying and accessing 1/2KG of them!

Interesting reading. It's always been a problem for me. Too many jels and unnatural foods have an undesirable effect on the digestive  system. Fig rolls sounds a good one. Soreen good but chewy on the go I'm guessing.
