Energy and Nutrition
Riding a cheap bike but being properly fuelled will give you better results than riding an expensive bike and eating junk. You are the engine for your bike and it really pays off to give it the right fuel at the right time.
To get the best out of your body during exercise it pays to keep it fuelled properly. Fuelling is critical, especially on long distance events over many hours. Knowing what to eat and when will keep you going for longer and help you perform better and have more fun. Sports nutrition has progressed massively in the last few years with a huge amount of products now available in different formats, different flavours and for different stages of exercise.
Specific liquids, powders and tablets for use before, during and after riding depending on your needs.
Vitamins and minerals supplements which can be taken to make up for any deficiencies in your diet.
Energy bars are an excellent solution for what to eat during exercise.
If you need a burst of energy fast then gels are one of the most convenient and efficient methods
