With luck the weather finally turned warm, so for a noon-hour start I packed up 24 hrs of SPIZ, lights, night gear, tools and what-not into a pack and headed out.
From Markham headed north to highway 60, rode the Missouri-esque hills of Algonquin until I was at the 200 mile mark, and then turned around. In the end rode for 22.5 hrs, covered 400 miles, 14,000 feet of climbing, saw 12 moose having to dodge two of them, was nearly clipped about four or five times including once by a school bus, and covered one oncoming car with chocolate SPIZ that insisted on passing FOUR other cars at the same time flying by at some ridiculous speed.
Also drank 23 bottles of SPIZ, or about the equivalent of 11,500 calories, and felt good the whole way, and feeling very confident with our food choice of SPIZ for this year. If you've tried Boost, Ensure, Perpetuem, Resource 2.0 or any other high calorie liquid food, I'd suggest checking out http://www.spiz.net and give it a shot, I've tried everything out there and this is by far the best.
