All athletes are encouraged to bring their preferred endurance fuels on the course. For the bike, the course maps have the location of three Kwik Trips. These gas stations are more the happy to provide you with water, Gatorade, Snickers, and other goodies to keep you energized. All you have to do is bring a few American dollar bills along. They also take credit cards if that's your thing.
