RBR Premium Member Steve Fenn wrote us recently, asking a series of great questions that apply to all roadies. The gist of his line of questions is, What should you eat before you go for a big ride or event? The answers to Steve's series of questions lie in the context of your nutrition both before and during a ride. Rather than thinking of a bolus of calories at 0-dark-30, think of a flow of calories starting a week before and continuing through to the end of the event. Coach John Hughes provides detailed nutritional advice both this week and next to answer Steve's salient questions.
