Proper athletes call it a “nutrition strategy”. I call it “better not run out of fuel in the middle of nowhere – it’s a long walk home”. So I’ve stocked up on gels & bars, I’ll get some bananas & a big bag of Jelly Babies – how’s that for a nutrition strategy!
The sage advice that I was given by an experienced cyclist today was, “whatever you do, don’t go into the red”. That sounds like a recipe for going really slow up the hills – I like it!
Also found out that the Etape will be supported by the Mavic Neutral Service dudes. I expect to hear hearty laughter every time they pass me! Still, it’ll make me feel like I’m Lance – but with the extra ball, obviously!
