Not To Eat Or Drink:
You can drink if you want afterwards, but
it will only slow you down if you try it during a ride.
Even if you aren't tipsy enough to crash, the alcohol
will dry you out, and leave you breathless. That's not
good when you're an hours ride back to the car.
They fill you up, but be careful. They can
bog you down quite easily too. Too many nuts at once
on an empty stomach may just kick you right in the stomach.
Like menstrual cramps for men. Kapeesh! Your stomach
can't break down heavy nuts quickly enough.
Good To Eat Or Drink:
Bars are nice, but keep them light, with
fewer nuts in them. Yogurt in them is good. Tried the
stuff that is like maple syrup in a tube. It's supposed
to be pure energy. If you like to eat peanut butter
toothpaste that is.
Bring lots of water, with several bottles
being recommended. Try freezing a couple of bottles
filled only 3/4 full with water overnight. This way
your third bottle of water is still cold when you get
to it. You can also put crushed ice in the second bottle
to keep that cold longer too. If you use a hydration
backpack, see if you can fit some ice cubes in the hole.
It also keeps your back cooler too.
