Energy during sports activities

Good morning...I am starting to train for in the Tour de Cure here in VA in April and I was recently diagnosed T2. My question is...does anyone have ideas on energy sources when riding long distances? Way back when I rode before, I used Gu Gel...but am not sure how that would affect me now (can't imagine very good ;-) ). I've heard fig newtons were good because the fruit would give you a quick burst of sugar and the cake (carbs) would be absorbed more slowly. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!!
