    I doubt if you could overdose on those things. The only supplements that it's possible to overdose on are vitamin supplements... so you have nothing to worry about. On the other hand, if you're going to be out there for awhile, gels and bars might not cut it. You're going to want real food after awhile. Use the gels and bars, but I would pack some real food as well. If you're out for a long time, you won't be moving as fast as you would on a shorter ride, so it's easier to digest things. My suggestions are bananas, trail mix, sandwiches, chocolate, bagels and anything else your heart desires.
