I am currently doing a build phase and about 4 weeks in, my current training consists of 3 build workouts a week, 1 hour long endurance ride and a long ride on a Sunday. I’m still trying to shed a few KGs while training and riding, I fuel at the moment with about 60g of carbs an hour, after listening to the recent podcast they mentioned the need for 100/120g of carbs an hour I understand this is when racing but would this be applicable for a weekend 3 hour ride and would this affect weight loss goals along the way? I appreciate I won’t be able to take 120g an hour like tomorrow but it could be something I work towards over the coming winter months.
Also any suggestions on things to eat while riding would be great to hear, I’m running out of ideas and currently have, SiS mini bars, Gels and 2 bottles of SiS go electrolyte with carbs versions.
Apologies if this has already being asked had a look with the search function but still can’t find much of an answer.
