Tech . . . well . . . not mechs, how about Tech/Food?

As I sit here trying not to spit watermelon seeds into my laptop after a lovely 3.5 hour ride in another gloriously temperate West Texas August day, I begin to wonder what do those of y'all who ride regularly take with you to eat?

(I'm jump clueless and my legs are fried, so no jumping in this post today).

 

See, after watching the lovely little documentary vive le tour and reading and re-reading Tim Krabbe's The RIder, I've started to get a little old-school about my ride nutrition.  Well, ok, I haven't performed any "chausse cabinets" or whatever, but thanks to Krabbe I have started taking figs--not fig newtons, but figs--and almond butter and jelly sandwiches with me on rides.

That towards the end of the ride stop at the Convenience store?  Fritos and Beef Jerky has become way more appealing than the moon pies and Backroad's Bakery fried pies.  (Although a ridiculous corporate legal action might prevent the perfect last hour drink.

I've hit that part of the riding year where another clif bar or gel just might push me over  . . . 

So . . . anyone else sick of sports nutrition products?  (And somehow, I think I did a version of this same post a couple of years ago . . .)

And there's this one convenience store in Tuscola that has Apple soda in the soda dispenser . . .
