    I had a couple of Fig Rolls (shitkicker range from Sainos) this morning on an early ride and they seem to do the job, but as you say, they're quite hard to get down - a bit dry and need a lot of chewing. I boshed them whole but probably two smaller bites would be better.

    Taste great though. Love the sleazy 90s vibe

    Slight change of direction but on similar theme to milk vs protein shake etc....

    Am trying to eat less 'science food', especially energy bars, and relying on more normal stuff. Still eat energy bars, but not so much, and I use gels still.

    Food-wise, its mostly home made rice cakes, Soreen, and bananas so far. Have just invested in some fig rolls but am yet to use them, and am probably gonna try dates too.

    What other 'normal' foods do people go with? And if anyone is already on fig rolls and dry fruit, how are they working out? Fig rolls stack up well nutritionally from an inspection of the packet.

    I was riding in Kent for around 4 hours yesterday morning. Suncream sorted me out ok, but is it possible to burn through a jersey? I swear my shoulders are burnt this morning and obviously didn't lather them up beforehand.

    Drank around 4 litres of electrolytes whilst out and still had a piss the colour of mountain dew when i got back
