Anyone out there into cycling?

I just bought myself a bike and keen to do some long rides next summer. How do you all keep fueled?

I use RX bars because 1) they are gluten free, and 2) they have enough Protein to slow the cab absorption. I cannot eat the high carb stuff for fear of dumping, but lots of Water and the RX bars seem to work for me. I will be doing a distance ride next month and will train using the RX bar plan.

I use Protein Bars. Never gone further than 60 miles or so bthough. Hydration is more my battle. Enjoy. B

Cheers guys - I’ve entered this race in April so I’ve got some work to do, nothing like having a target to get one motivated 😂

I'm a spinning instructor, but also a distance runner. I have tried out so many different things for fules during my long runs. What works for me is actually sour candy. I know it sounds strange, but I start out around 30 min into the race and take one piece every km. That along with electrolyte drinks works for me.

What is important is that you try out different things for your long rides way in advance of your race. Nothing new on race day or the week prior.

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
