2) Hydration, drink lots, as often as possible but without running out. It's important to monitor consumption but not to see yourself short. More is better as I am happy to stop and pee it out

3) Electrolyte replacement. I will be using Electrolyte supplements in my hydration pack to replenish the lost salts etc from sweat. I expect I'll be doing a lot of sweating

4) Energy bars and gels for throughout the day. I will have a small stash of these in my jacket for use throughout the day. No specific meals during the day, just these.

5) WINE GUMS!! I will of course have my stash of Wine Gums for when I need that rush of sugar / energy. Where would we be without Wine Gums?

6) Recovery shakes - I'll be having 700cc of recovery drink when I get back into the Bivouac each night. Within 20 minutes of getting in, this will just help my muscles recover faster.

7) Eat lots for dinner, maybe even eat twice at the bivouac while preparing my road book and before going to sleep.

That's my rough plan.

Lyndon

thank you the answer

Excellent plan, I like the Clif Bar gel blocks too, similar sensation as eating wine gums but with added electrolyte hit

For info - the ASO organisation also issue you with a lunch pack each day, which is worth collecting each morning as it has some good snacks and stuff in there - and at least now Klim make a jacket that has a stowage pocket on the rear to stash it in!

Hope it goes well for you Pyndon.

Took my 990 for a cold ride today after installing a new engine. Of course I had to add an extra sticker...

Love the Vancouver 2010 Pin on Bacon! Living here and having the Olympics was an amazing experience... One year I might get to follow the Dakar in person, rather than via the F5irehose..

Rock on and be yourself...

Bike looking awesome, Pyn! Has got to be one of the most identifiable from a distance.

Take it easy in the lima traffic
