  1. If you are trying to train for a longer distance (half-ironman, ironman),
    I really liked Gordo's "Going Long". It has an excellent section on
    Nutrition. Much loved that book.

    Good luck with the bike (I truly think that once you can't get off your
    bike is the point when "its time" for an IM or 1/2 IM).
