I'm trying to learn about cycling for personal improvement. I am very interested in the culture of cycling, and i'm considering doing some writing on the topic. i've joined several of the yahoo cycling clubs, just to get to know some people, and learn about cycling.
I'm trying to learn more about how diet and such affects performance. I don't race or anything, but i just want to ride, and the better i can ride, the longer i can ride (a vicious cycle but i like it).
What do you eat, in prep for a good ride, anything special?
Something else i've wondered about, for in nutrition, like so many other things, there are so many contradictory thoughts out there. For example, i've gotten the impression you should be eating the night before, for a morning ride. digestion takes time. thoughts?
