    What do you guys like to eat before you ride?

    Giant sandwiches like this turkey cranberry and brie that I'm eating now.

    If it's a morning ride I eat a bagel with cream cheese, an apple, and two cups of coffee, followed by some sort of cliffbar etc. every 45mins that ride.

    On ride days (amd most non ride days) Toast and peanutbutter and banana or oatmeal and berries in the morning ... and coffee. Sandwich or veggie sushi and fruit for lunch... another coffee or green tea. I usually snack on dry fruits and nuts in the afternoon, I drink alot of water through the ride and usually need to refill my camel back.

    I agree. All organic peanut butter and all organic strawberry jam straight from the canal farms, a glass of cold milk and a granola bar for when I'm on the trail.

    Cereal,...P&B samich,...scrambled eggs,..or some leftovers.
    Whats more important to me is that I take a real good dump before I hit the trails.

    Amen on the dump.....Get up 2 hours early just to "marinate" so that my rider weight is correct for my shock settings.

    That's why the 2 cups of coffee are so important to my regiment. Nothing worse then getting caught on a wide open piece of trail and... you know.

    This is the DH forum guys, no need to keep up the green tea, granola, and yoghurt-with-berries hippie charade - that's for your Mom and co-workers.

    Obviously, everybody here has Poptarts and Monsters for breakfast everyday. Dude.
