Hydrate! Miles 0-20 Hydrate early and often. Drink before you’re thirsty and you’ll be a lot happier at mile 95! Eat something solid like a nutrition bar. Even if you’re still a bit full from breakfast, make sure you eat a full bar in the first hour. Miles 20-50 Drink 1-2 21-ounce bottles with electrolyte drink mix. Eat more solid food like an energy bar and add in some sugary food like a Powerbar Chew, or banana. Miles 50-70 This is the point on your 100-mile ride when your body begins to burn through its glycogen storage. This means you need to consistently refuel for good performance in the second 50 miles. We recommend a balance of quick-to-digest energy bars or chews. At this stage in the ride, eating a light meal would be fine as well. Think about getting the energy you need for miles 80-100 now. Miles 70-150 This will likely be your last 75-120 minutes of riding. Drink at least 1-2 bottles of electrolyte hydration mix, and begin to introduce your short-term energy products. Gels and chews and other quick-to-digest nutrition works great at this stage of the ride. If you like using caffeine don’t hesitate to use it, but be sure to drink enough to avoid further dehydration.
