Reply To: Nutrition for long bike / anyone doing masters


I agree with AJ, of course! Now is a great time to plan and test / train your gut and see what works best so that nutrition boosts your performance rather than derail it. My go to nutrition / hydration on the bike, for example, is Infinit with 250 or so calories and other key nutrients per bottle. I also take in small bits of Honey Stinger waffles every 15-20 minutes. I’ve tested that and it works for me really well; the key is to remember to actually consume them 🙂 For this, I set an alert on my Garmin to remind me just in case.

I also would test how nutrition / hydration that will be provided on course works with your body so you can be confident, come race day, that you can turn to that if needed.
