Planning on a big ride this August, Lands End to Broadstairs over 5/6 days.

The question is what to use for in ride fuelling? Gel, water, etc and what to use for post ride, local Italian for lots of pasta?

    Everything you can get hold of - eat a balanced diet , you wont need to stint yourself on eth days you ride anyway! pasta bread rice, potatoes etc. Choose stuff you digest easily though

    depends on the speed and mileage - during the ride it needs to be small but often and digestable - afterwards fill your boots (pasta, bread, potatoes etc but remeber to get some protein for repair etc.)
