the bike is not the only one using up energy. I long ago
worked out that cycling energy bars and gels not only cost
a fortune, but they can get too much. They’re too
sweet and difficult to stomach continually. I still carry
one energy drink on the bike, but always have plain water
as well. Food wise, there’s nothing like a good old
fashioned sandwich or peanut bar and I make a habit of eating
something every hour.
