I am riding my racing bike for 2 hour and I will be doing longer hours each week. I am eating a 3 Carbohydrate to 1 Protein meal straight after my ride and then the same an hour later.
This is working as I can ride 2 hours the next day without feeling too tired.
I am also taking 750ml Gatorade for every hour I ride, and 500ml before I start the ride.
Eating this way on my bike days, 3 days a week, is making my calories huge on my tracking day. Does this matter. I need more food on the bike days.
If you have any advice about riding long distance events and eating, I would be glad to here it.
