Cycling pack

In a higher gear with Etixx

Do you spend a lot of time cycling? Would you like to cycle greater distances and go faster??! Cycle racing on the road requires long training sessions over large distances. Whether you are riding with your cycling club on Sunday, or training for the season’s races, you want to clock up plenty of kilometres on your GPS. However, in addition to training, you also need to pay attention to what you eat before, during and after each ride. Without a healthy diet and only relying on training, it is impossible to reach your full potential for a race.

Cycling faster and farther

Whether you’re a road cyclist or a mountain biker, it is crucial that you build up stamina if you want to improve your performance on the bicycle. Professional cyclists spend most of their time on their bikes, and cycle 400 to 1500 km every week. Even serious fans manage around 300 km per week. Keeping to a similar training schedule is physically, mentally and even logistically demanding. You may notice that you often do not have enough time to prepare a meal, especially if you have to combine training with a full time job.

Fuel to keep on going

Sufficient training is the key to success, but a healthy diet is at least as important. After all, it provides your body with the energy it needs to cope with long rides. With every meal, try to consume a proper balance of macronutrients: carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats, and plenty of fruit and vegetables of course. But most of all: do not forget to replenish your reserves while cycling, and consume between 30 and 60 g of carbohydrate per hour (depending on the duration of your training) to avoid total exhaustion!

As a recreational cyclist, you probably don’t have the luxury of having a personal dietitian and chef to assist you with nutrition. But luckily Etixx can lend you a helping hand.
