Bicycling has become a favorite hobby rather a craze for many people. Surprisingly, its not only youngsters who’ve taken this up but we do see fit and healthy adults, middle-aged and above middle age too, cycling up the hill on a bright sunny morning. Eating healthy and nutritious foods provides you with the energy needed to start your trek but what about replenishing lost energy stores in between the long and arduous bike ride? Energy alone is not the key need from a good snack in between but there are other factors too that must be kept in mind before packing your snack bag.
Carbohydrates are the fueling source for any physical activity. This macronutrient is stored as glycogen in the liver and muscles but we also need replenishment in between to rekindle lost nutrients and energy. If your ride is less than an hour the food that you eat before starting the trek is good enough but for those rides that surpass the 60-minute timeframe your body depends on the snack that you carry to keep you hydrated and energized. It is recommended to pack more snacks than you think you need and eat/drink a small portion of them every quarter of an hour. Listed here are some of the best snacks that you can carry with you anytime you take up a bike ride.
AVOID FRAUD. EAT SMART.
