need some advice on what to eat and when to eat before i take the bike out for a run. I know you shouldn,t eat to soon before you head out.I try to let dinner settle for a couple of hours before i usually head out. When i go for a morning ride before work i usually take a couple of spoonfuls of peanut butter, then proper breakfast when i get back. I always take a bottle with me to keep fluids topped up. I only ride for fun and fitness.
