I get up early sometimes and go for a ride before work (or to work). I like to ride for 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 hours and I'm not holding back.
I've been getting up at 5am and having Orange Juice and Muesli like normal and then hitting the trails/road as quickly as I can... but it doesn't feel great for the first 30mins of which I'm burping a lot.
I've tried going out in the morning "empty" and I'm good for maybe an hour and a half before I feel shakey, so I think I need to have something in the stomach.
I think the OJ is the problem. Perhaps just a very small bowl of muesli would be better so there is something (but not much)... and get another breakfast once back at home (or at work)?
What do other early riser riders and commuters do for breakfast?
