Whether you’re cycling on a medium range or during an intensive workout, it is obvious that your performance will be related to what you have eaten previously. An average cyclist burns out 300 calories an hour, therefore you can eat without worrying about getting fat. However, when talking about cycling, it is not a matter of how much you eat, but about what are you actually eating in order for you to achieve the right amount of energy. So, what should we eat?
Returning from your trip might find your body poor in this miracle substance called glycogen. Therefore, you should make sure to recuperate the amount of glycogen consumed right after you stop the physical effort. Before having a strong meal rich in carbohydrates, you can drink a fruit juice or even a milkshake in order to reestablish a certain balance in your body.
