Energy Bars - Fuel for Cyclists
Energy bars are excellent ways to take on food on the bike, combining crucial carbohydrate for energy with other nutrients like protein and minerals like salt, which will both help your performance on the bike and aid recovery afterwards.
They are small enough to fit in your jersey pocket, making them ideal to take on longer rides when you need a little more sustenance than a banana or some energy gels.
The versatility of energy bars is that they are available in a wide range of flavours, from the bland to the exotic. The ingredients vary from purely nutritional to the flavour-focused, with fruits and nuts commonly featuring for their health benefits.
They may not be as easy to consume on the bike as energy gels are, but the energy they give you will allow your ride to last much longer and give you the energy to push on up that final climb or a burst of speed for that final sprint.,/p>
