Long time readers will know that this originally started out as a cycling blog before I started talking about just fitness and health in general. So it won’t be surprising that I’m interested in how to fuel your body right for those long rides where you can be in the saddle for hours!
It’s so important that you keep your energy stores up during a race, being careful to eat and drink right before and after. Cycling can be intense, especially those hilly rides. You can burn a lot of calories on long rides and it’s important feed your body right!
Sports nutrition brand, Science in Sport have asked me to share this graphic they’ve created to let you know what it takes to fuel a ride such a grand tour.
