    A cigg and a cup of tea is all I have time for before setting off.
    But I always have Bannana in my bag and a Cranberry creal bar.

    + I always have a loaf of bread in the Fridge at work.

    So I ride in on empty, get changed then eat my Ceral bar, followed by my Bannana then 3 slices of white toast with butter and a cup of sweet tea.

    You should get 50% of the energy for the ride down your neck at least 12 hours before the ride begins.

    Example; 200km Audax, circular route. Start 08:00 Sunday. 16 Deg C average temp forecast.
    Total calorie expenditure 5000ish.
    1300 extra calories on Friday evening.
    1300 extra calories on Saturday.
    600 calories for breakfast 2 hours before the ride.
    600 calories at first control.
    600 calories at half distance.
    600 calories at third control.

    I'm trying to get rid of some flab, so I don't eat any extra on Friday evening, and reduce the feeding during the ride to 300 calories at each control.

    On a 100km, I have a 600 calorie breakfast and a 600 calorie snack at half distance.

    On rides less than 50 miles, I don't eat anything extra to my BMR.

    Two bananas half hour before a quick 20 mile stint does me any more and i shove some toast in for good measure.

    There's going to be some very wicked comments about your method of cooking porridge.

    I just eat as much as I can - usually this is a huuge bowl of cereal, but sometimes the toast, banana, smoothie, more toast, yogurt gets in there aswell.

I very rarely do, maybe some cereal mid day but I dont feel the need to eat much early on.Went for a 26 mile spin today and apart from 5 bottles of water:ohmy:had no food and felt fine.Felt great infact! Had some cereal when I got home so in no danger of wasting away:biggrin:
