You can come pretty close to your calorie content by going to a convenience store and reading the labels of similar mixes. It will be close enough. You can eat whatever works for you on long rides. The only thing to be careful about with trail mix is that you get enough fruit (carbs) and not too heavy on nuts.

And please, no more of that font?

Why is that?

I'm also working on upping my mileage as I'm gearing up for HHH coming up. 100 mile road race on saturday and then the crit on Sunday. So I'm just trying to figure out what to eat... ugh.

Nuts have too much fat and fiber for eating on the bike. I used to bring peanut butter sandwiches on the bike and it finally dawned on me why I was getting stomach upset. You want, basically, easily digested carbohydrate with a minimum of fiber.

Okay, that makes sense.
