Eat, Drink and Be Merry

I've seen numerous posts on multiple forums asking for advice from people just trying their first long ride, and earlier this week I stole the above saying realising it is entirely appropriate for Sportives et al.

So - if anyone asks about long rides just repeat: Eat, Drink and be Merry
    Eat - plenty the night before, and hearty breakfast Drink - fully hydrate the night before, 1 hour before setting off and make sure you go to the loo before leaving Be Merry - Enjoy it! It's not a race, you're out to have fun
