What to Eat

On tours longer than a week, we usually pack about three days worth of food at a time. Any more than that and bags get way too heavy. For shorter, lighter trips you can always eat gas station food and buy more restaurant food, but that adds up quickly. You can find almost all these ingredients in any crappy grocery store in any tiny town. For the most part, we spend $4-$8 a day on food for each person. These recipes are quick and easy, don't weigh that much, and are perfect after riding all day.
