I hate to talk about bonking but it is a fact of life for self contained tourists. If you don’t stay topped off you will bonk and suffer, there is no way around that. The only preventative is eating while you ride. The problem is finding food that tastes good, is easy to digest, and can take the beating of being in a bike bag.
Every bike ride seems to have bananas but they are very hard to carry. My favorites have always been fig bars. Two Fig Newtons has the same energy content as a PowerBar and tastes a lot better plus they are easier to eat.
