Fuel For Cyclists

Biking Snacks A quick biking route can easily turn into an endurance adventure so it is important to have some snacks packed for fuel and muscle recovery. An ideal snack should have a combination of components and because your snack packing space is limited, it can be difficult to pack efficiently. There are FIVE main components or ingredients you should consider in your snack including: Carbohydrates your energy source, depending on type of carbohydrate it may be quick energy or slow release energy that is better for endurance sports such as a long bike ride. Simple sugars your quick release carbohydrate energy that gives a rapid energy boost, these alone will not sustain you for an endurance activity. Sodium this electrolyte is used for muscle function and many other biological mechanisms. It is just ONE of the multiple electrolytes lost in sweat, others include potassium and chloride. These three plus two other ingredients each offer something valuable that your body needs to keep performing at its best during long rides or events. Schedule a nutrition consult to learn about ALL five ingredients for most efficient fueling and how you can enhance your pre, during and post workout snacks!
