Last week we looked at what you should be putting into your body pre-ride to ensure you are adequately stocked. However it’s not enough to keep you going for the entire ride. This is where hydration and energy comes in.
You are likely to be tapping into your glycogen stores here so topping up with fast converting energy in the form of convenient food, sports drinks or gels is highly recommended.
Our official nutrition partner for the 2019 Bowral Classic is Science in Sport (SiS) and they have a fantastic range of gels and powders to ensure you can keep going throughout the ride.
Old favourites such as dried fruit also work well and are always handy to carry as part of your bike lunch box!
