Why white rice and not brown? Brown rice takes longer to break down into the bloodstream.. White rice has no to very little nutritional value and it is heavily processed.. just wondering

That is a good start! Add gloves- change to clip in pedals, a good pair of bike-shoes/sandels, a cat-eye or equivalent and get out and ride! A camelback is good for extra water in warmer weather, a few packs of sportsbeans and hammergel or bar for long rides.
This is the best food for a long ride, for the night before: 1/2-1cup of white rice, 4-6oz of broiled chicken/turkey or fish, and a steamed veggie like broccoli. Got it from a trainer and it works everytime for my next days ride.

I suffer from the inability to reach down for a water bottle while riding. So, I wear a Camelback. I love it. In the summer I fill it with ice and it helps keep me cool.

Last year I bought a new bike-Trek's 7000 Hybrid. It is an okay bike for right now until I get better and will upgrade to a road bike. My question is what are some things I should buy? Now I just have the bike, a helmet and some riding shorts.
