How To Fuel Like A Pro - On-Bike Cycling Nutrition



What to eat and drink, while riding, and how to eat and drink it, are questions that cyclists of all experience levels are faced with. Former Tour de France rider Daniel Lloyd gives his pro tips to get the most out of your riding.

Daniel suggests taking on board at least one piece of food per hour, either a bar, a gel or none-cycling specific food such as a jam sandwich or banana.

He also recommends drinking at least one 500ml bottle per hour, although pros will aim to drink double this to maintain adequate levels of hydration. Pros will also take one bottle of energy drink and one of plain water, but Daniel tells us that his personal preference is two of energy mix.

And what of electrolytes? When it's over 30 degrees celcius, Dan swaps energy drink for an electrolyte mix.

All these tips, and more.
