Saturday Ride

40 miles on Saturday.  The early afternoon session had me looking for a way to get out to Hwy KK and back home.  Quick showered and jumped back on the bike to meet up with John at Sprocketz and headed over to Red Eye for some beer, food, and good conversation with new and old friends alike.  What a fantastic weekend.  Even with USA losing gold to Canada hockey.  Now get out there and bring some rukus.

Energy Bars at Home

I found this in an issue of Bike Magazine while cleaning up man cave/spare bedroom.

Dry Ingredients
1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
2 Cups Rolled Oats
1/2 Cup Oat Bran
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shredded coconut (unsweetend)
1 Cup Lightly Salted Chopped Nuts
1/2 Cup Dried Fruit

Wet Ingredients:
2/3 Cup Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Milk
2 eggs
1/2 Cup Honey
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar

Line a 9"x13" Baking pan with plastic wrap and coat with cooking spray.
Mix together the dry ingredients, then usa a mixer to blend well with wet ingredients.
Press the uber-sticky mixture into the pan.
Cool for 30 minutes in the fridge.
After cooling, remove the concoction from the pan and cut into bars.
Place bars on a greased baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes, or until firm to the touch.
Let cool, then chow down before during and after your ride.
