    If you believe nothing else on this thread...

    ...believe this.

    Never, I repeat, never tank up on a Long John Silver's Super Sampler a half an hour before hitting a ride with a prolonged climb at the beginning.

    Perhaps this advice goes without saying for some, but there are still others of us out here who seem to labor under the delusion that we are special and possess some type of invincibility.

    Had a teammate do something like this with a big combo platter of food before football practice. He was ssslllllooooowwwwww that day.

    I ate a pizza before a ride last winter... emergency stop to an boat launch outhouse. Barely got the layers off in time.

    O'Charley's Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich, and raw carrots have both done me in.

    Surprisingly though, a Bojangle's Sausage and Egg Biscuit and Seasoned Fries are freaking awesome.

    pre-rode a race course on a saturday, just one easy lap

    was really hungry , stupidly got a mcdonalds big mac afterward instead of waiting till I got real food

    worse idea ever, performed terribly on race day.

    While it my be blasphemy to mention road bikes here, don't stop for lunch at a British pub, get chatting and drinking with the locals, then realize you're 70 miles out on your long LSD out and back training ride for an upcoming tour. Seems several pints does something to the time distance continuum, and will result in the longest, most painful and miserable ride of your life.

    Wait till you get a little age on you and you'll realize Long John Silvers and Micky D's is a bad idea regardless of the following activity.

    I always wondered why someone would name a restaurant chain Long John Silver's. If you have read the original novel the character is NOT the sympathetic romantic rogue the various versions have portrayed him. In the original he was a petty evil malignant coward who betrayed everyone in the end.

    Never could eat at long Johns, just the smell of the vinegar when you walk in the place is enough to make me gag.

    My downfall was a can of Hormel Corned Beef Hash that I found in the bottom of the camper food bin. That got left around mile 5 on the slickrock trail, right there, next to the painted lines. There's not a lot of places to hide used corned beef hash in slickrock country.
