Recipes for Cyclists

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.
