I'm doing some riding of existing routes (200k randonneuring permanents, for example) and also exploring some new areas on my bike. Got a 200k planned this Saturday that I've never ridden on before.

1. 750 miles (4 days) or 501 miles (41:39 or so) or 1200+/- miles (8 days) or numerous 600k (2-day) and 400k (1-long day), depends on how you define a "ride".

I just eat regular food on randonneuring rides. Bananas when available, the triangle-deli sandwiches, crackers, cookies, the occasional corn dog or Reeses cups.
