    I love riding my bike! It's the most fun way I can think of to move my body so.... I've signed up to do a 66 mile ride. My question is... what can I bring that will fit in my pockets to eat when everyone else is eating goo and Cliff bars? Any suggestions? How bout to drink?

    I'd suggest some nuts like macadamias or almonds. To drink, I'd have to just go with water.

    I'm building up my mileage quite fast and struggling to avoid energy bars too, i managed 60 miles on sunday with water, an apple and a few nuts but was famished afterwards and destroyed today.

    Last week I did a similar distance and had a clif bar mid-way round, plus a banana and water and felt much better after... Anyone know of a more paleo energy bar?

    i have used:

    - bananas
    - almond butter
    - some form of trail mix
    - sweet potato chips made in the oven

    to drink, definitely water. if its particularly hot you can add a bit of sea salt to it.

    Larabars are IIRC all fruit and nuts, no grains like in Clif bars. There's also the DIY route.

    Dates are a decent go-to for some energy.
