There is a lot of information about protein intake post-ride, but I haven’t read much about in-ride protein intake (carbs are well covered). I’m curious to what I should be eating for protein (g per hour) during a long ride so my body doesn’t eat itself. The summary is below.
In August I am taking three days and riding 350 miles to an event. I will then take one day of rest. The next day is 250 miles of road/gravel/mountain biking which will take 24 hours to complete. I’ll take a day off and then ride the 350 miles home.
Obviously this will be an eating contest to fuel subsequent days but how much protein is necessary?
