Ok, this weekend I’ve got the Manchester to Blackpool bike ride. It covers 63 miles, which is a huge distance for me.
The furthest I’ve ridden is 28 miles for over the edge. This had a lot of climbing in it and I felt my legs starting to give up 5 miles from the end of the ride.
So, what should I eat beforehand to ensure I’m suitably fuelled for the ride?
Lots if pasta the night before? Is this all I need or do I need to start this a few days earlier?
Later next month I’ve got an 8hr mtb endurance event and I could do with some advice for that too?
I won’t be racing off and trying to beat people on pace; I hope to finish mid to bottom table thanks to a slow and steady pace. Does the type of food differ for this or is it still loads of carbs?
