In preparation for my Ride Across Idaho at the end of this week I calculated my nutritional needs during the ride.  I used the calorie table and formulas at UltraCycling to help calculate my nutritional needs.

I’ll be burning between 5,000 and 6,500 calories a day!  My goal is to eat 300 – 400 calories an hour on the  bike and then make up the difference at camp.  On my 100 mile training rides I was able to consume those calories without getting a sour stomach, so I should be in good shape.

Here is a screenshot of my worksheet:
