CPTIPS Nutritional Program

Basic Training Ride

This ride, riden at moderate intensity for 15 to 50 miles, may be just a bit longer than the 2 hour limit that can lead to the bonk with inadequate "on the bike" carbohydrates supplements, so snacking on the bike is important. As the planned training intensity increases above 80% VO2max, it becomes more important to avoid eating in the immediately 4-hour pre-ride interval to avoid GI distress.
