During the summer I too ride.  I have found "FOR ME" that BG under 120 while riding I have little umph  I use cake decorating frosting (in tubes) to juice up my BG (I test regularly while riding).  If I am riding in hills I eat more than than on the flats.

test, that is how you find out what works
