After sitting on my tail in school for two years, I've decided to start moving! My husband and I are training for the 5 Borough Bike Tour in NYC 2015. We've started riding regularly, which I love. The problem is that sometimes a couple hours after a ride I bottom out. I'd like to prevent this without over eating, so am wondering what has worked for others with this problem. Also, for long rides, what works best for you in terms of testing frequency during the ride and snacks that work for you. Trouble is I detest most protein bars!
