    I'm pretty sure it's a 20 oz...but it could be 24. I don't remember. But yes, 2 200-calorie packets in one bottle. When both were naked on the return trip it was fine.

    Short bottle or tall bottle?

    3 scoops is where I max out on a tall bottle.

    Tall bottle. The one on the downtube. I kept plain water in the smaller one.

    For my 140.6 I used one bottle with about 1000 calories, I would sip it throughout the race. The other two were straight water.

    I’ll go as much as 4 scoops, but then I treat it as 2 bottles and will usually take a sip of plain water after each Tailwind sip. Sounds like Sidewalk’s strategy, but on a smaller scale.

    Usually the strategy when we’re climbing for a couple hours right out of the gate...

    So my next objective, obviously, is to do a humongous dirt ride with the Tailwind.

    When I can nail down a date, it will probably be park at end of Silverado, up B*, down Motorway, up MS, down Harding, back to start at the FS gate. For starters. :unsure:

    Tater Tots also are a commensurate substitute for chicken nuggets.

    The new norm? Hope not. Poor people. Poor girls, most boys are fat.

    Enjoy your energy drink / bar and remember. It will probably not harm you if you burn more calories than you - - -

    Kidney beans can provide me with a super human power, but not one my wife appreciates. :gag:

    Oh dear, that brought back a terrible memory of eating slightly off three bean salad in a share house in my younger days. :sick:

    That would depend on your definition of the word 'good'.

    I'll raise your three bean with a pastor burrito and diet pepsi. My grown children still recount and give me grief from days gone by in their youth.

    Should have gone with the full strength Pepsi for aromatic enhancement.
