1200 km Brevet in mountainous terrain, 35celsius
[QUOTE=Paleobird;948405]I have a hiking buddy who is also an avid (but rather skinny fat) cyclist. He is constantly popping those gel cubes on hikes. Blech! The strange thing is that he seems to be much more prone to heat exhaustion than I do even though he is in good physical condition. It's pretty warm here in SoCal in the summer.
Does anybody have any data or studies that could support this anecdotal thought that sugar burners are more susceptible to heat stroke?[/QUOTE]
I am a keen brevet rider and have recently got myself into ketosis is preparation for a very long (90hour) 1200 km ride over 3.75 days. schedule: day 1:400km day 2 :400km day 3: 300km day 4: 100km. minimum average speed 15km/hr including sleep stops etc. approximately 39000 kcals over the 3.75 days.
This will all be in searing Bulgarian heat on the 29th June onwards up and over the Balkan mountains twice!
If I wish to complete this mammoth entirely in ketosis , what sort of food and drink can I use during the event? coconut milk? coconut oil? cheese?
can I do this in ketosis do you think?
