Century Fueling

Postby adininno » Wed Aug 18, 2010 4:08 pm

I have a century this weekend and am looking at my fueling options. I'm 180lb and figure on the century taking me 5.5-6 hours. There is a good amount of climbing. I have packets of Heed and Perp so I can mix new bottles as I ride. This is my plan:

Before the ride: (1) gel and (3) enduralytes
First hour: (1) packet Heed supplemented with fresh water, after an hour passed, (3) enduralytes and a gel.
Second hour: (1) packet Heed supplemented with fresh water, after an hour passed, (3) enduralytes and a gel.
Third, fourth, and fifth hours: (1) packet of Perp supplemented with fresh water, after an hour passed, (3) enduralytes. Or I may go with half a packet of Perp and a gel.

Should I change anything/add/delete amounts? Thanks

I've got a Century in mid-Oct. How did your plan work out for you?
