I’m sure everyone is aware of carb loading and how your body needs replenishing throughout your longer rides.
But how do you plan this out?
How many calories or which type carbs before the race? How many days of carb loading? Same carbs every day or taper your carbs?
How to fuel your ride? Constant and consistent calories/energy? Or more food on the flatter bits so you have the energy for the climbs?
How to use the data from ssb 1 & 2 and general build to help build a nutrition plan.
My ride in question is The Fred Whitton challenge, I’ve never ridden over 60miles and defiantly never done that amount of climbing. I’m going to start riding longer distances when the wether gets better, but how do I fuel this?
Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction of a deep dive podcast that I’ve missed, or a website with a super computer style calorie calculator.
Thanks for reading, look forward to reading the responsences.
