I was out on a ride once and went into a little town supermarket looking for some healthy food and found some pumpernickel bread. it tastes great travels great keeps great and is quite filling. I have been eating it ever since and often take it riding

Yeah, i've been a bit of a fan of it for years.

Recently picked up a 500gr block of it as semi-emergency food for my tour.. It isn't light though!

yeah great, I have found coles seems to sell it cheaper than anywhere else $2.32 for 500g. your right about it being heavy though, but it is so great even in summer

Tried the pumpernickel and it was OK. Travels very well, no crushing this loaf! But I've found it just that bit too heavy to digest well. Last trip away I took some Naan bread and Roti bread and found these to be quite tasty and filling. Two of these, spread with as much of your favouite fillings as you can and roll them up makes a great lunch. I put peanut butter and sultanas on the Roti bread and was delighted by the 'instant satay' taste :D

I shall go for this approach again.

Nothing better than a decent slice of pumpernickel bread with Braunschweiger and mustard. That might just be the german in me coming out though.... :wink:
