I thought it would be a good idea if we shared our nutrition plans for the race here. Really, I'm being selfish and looking for a little insight as what to do. Most of you out there have a plan, and a lot of you have done this before. I know everyone is different but at a comparison, or for me, a starting place would be nice.
On my long rides (between 4-5 hours, have not gone longer yet), I have been consuming 4 bottles of liquids (64 ounces). 2 water and 2 sports drink. This is probably not enough as I did not have to use the bathroom until after I got off my 5 hour ride last weekend.
I try to consume 150-200 calories an hour but usually fall around 130 (not including the sports drinks.
So after a 4 hour ride I typically have ingested about 1000 calories.
Does this come close to what you are all doing, or am I way off??
