Fueling the ride is an important part of your training. Without the right energy consumption during rides, your training will suffer. An individual ride will result in the dreaded bonking, leaving you unable to continue your ideal effort. Bonking can be so severe that the rider might have to end their training effort altogether. Ride after ride of poor fueling will result in overall decreased recovery, low performance gains, and injury susceptibility. This is a recipe for disaster for anyone’s training season.
