Eating while on a long group ride

Eat in stages while on a group ride as eating and drinking tend to become afterthoughts when you’re hanging on for dear life. Smooth the hand to mouth process by tucking a gel or two into your shorts legs for easy access, and open wrappers and bottles before you ride. Also, never throw the empty gel wrapper on the ground, it is bad for the environment and can make bicyclist look like they don’t care. Remember that bicycles are a good clean, efficient means a transportation, so don’t tarnish that image by littering while we ride.
