I don't know about any of you out there in cyber-mtbike-land, but I was 
getting tired of buying Powerbars and other nutrition supplements to enhance 
my riding.  However, I do understand the benefit of having a quick, nutritious 
snack that is full of energy on hand during a ride.

So I asked around and came up with a recipe for Powerbar-like bars that seem 
to have a lot of what we need.  I'll place the recipe here on the Usenet for 
all to copy, distribute ... [but please don't market them, cause I'll only 
kick myself for not doing it first ;-)  ].

Please make them and enjoy them before you think about flaming me.  Trust me, 
you'll like them much more than Powerbars, and they're cheaper to make than to 
buy their counterpart.

ALSO, PLEASE POST ANY OTHER RECIPES YOU HAVE FOUND THAT HELP BIKING 
PERFORMANCE!!!

Not yet Alice, I'm really sorry we don't have chip and pin faiiclties. We've got your details and as soon as they're on sale we'll let you know. Cheers for being a keen bean and apologies that it's taking so long. There's a big piece of work to do but it'll be up and running in no time.
