Yesterday I went did a 4.5 hr ride and, forgetting that local parks have all shut off their water fountains, only had the two small bottles that I brought from home. I drank both by the two hour mark because part of my goals for the ride was to be cognizant of eating and drinking more (LOL). I still ate a ton though. I can calculate the exact calories later if anyone really cares.
I never found anywhere to refill. The last hour home was a total slog, full on bonkaroo. I was full from food but extremely thirsty.
Is this still a bonk? Or is there another term for this? Alternatively, in the future, would it be smarter to cut down food consumption when I’m running out of water? As I understand it takes water to process food, so maybe I was doubling my losses by continuing to eat without any drinking.
