Recipes for Cyclists

Off the bike, On the bike

Finding healthful, nutritious, and simple recipes for cycling can be challenging, but to get started, see bicycling.com and susanstable.com. From there, you could explore allrecipes.com, epicurious.com, or other generic recipe sites. Knowing some basic nutrition and your fitness goals is helpful in choosing recipes. Endurance riding requires different fueling than does sprinting. Also, understanding your personal health needs contributes to selecting various ingredients in recipes (e.g. lactose intolerant, gluten-free, diabetes, etc.). Although many commercially-produced products offer convenience, ease-of-use, and long shelf life, they may not measure up to homemade nutrition bars, snacks, or meals that are easy to make and store.

General & Cycling Nutrition

Off the bike, On the bike

There is so much nutrition, food, and cooking advice that it is hard to know what or who to follow. Several trusted sources for cyclists, specifically, are bicycling.com and cyclingweekly.com. These articles discuss general nutrition along with pre-, during, and post-riding nutrition recommendations. Also addressed are carbs, protein, fat, glucose, sodium, vitamins, minerals, caffeine, and more. Other cyclist food concerns are covered: amount, frequency, and type of food to be eaten. If you are interested in clean eating, paleo foods, vegan, or other types of food philosophies, they are all briefly covered on these sites.
