What are the best snacks to pack on a cycle ride?

What are the best snacks to pack on a cycle ride?

As you are well aware, cycling is a physically demanding sport which requires stamina and determination. This means that it is important to keep your energy levels up if you want to maintain a good cycling speed. Pasta is great for fuelling energy, but it is very inconvenient to carry around in your rucksack. A pasta pot will be heavy and bulky, which might weigh you down and decrease your cycling speed. This is why we have put together a list of high energy foods which are compact and light, making them perfect for slipping into your bag.

Even if you have a padded bag, it is worth leaving anything valuable or breakable at home. For example, it is much safer to leave your expensive smartphone at home and bring an old cell phone with you instead. You may not be able to go online to look up your route on Google Maps, play a game of partypoker or login to Facebook during your pit stops, but it means you won’t have to worry about protecting your rucksack as much. Let’s take a look at some lightweight snacks you could pack for your cycle trip.

A small bag of dried mango or apricot provides one of your five-a-day, as well as fruit sugars which will give you plenty of energy. This healthy and light snack is perfect for slipping into your bag.

Dried banana chips are also a great source of energy and potassium. Bananas release their energy slowly, meaning it will keep you fuller and more energized for longer.

Cereal bars with a dried yoghurt topping contain essential carbohydrates which help to provide long lasting energy. In addition, the sugary topping will give you an instant energy boost until the long lasting carbohydrates kick in.

12Hr Saint Pete Race coverage

For 12 humid hrs, the streets of St.pete were filled with racers competing to see who could complete the most laps on a 14.7mile course.. There were some impressive lap times being put up.. just breaking 41min lap times. The overall turn out was good considering the sketchy weather and horrible heat. They had 12 4 man teams.. actually 11- 4 man teams and a 3 man team that held their own finishing 6th with only 3 riders ( Ryan Magin, Joe Badessa and Billy Crupp). Top honors went to 352 Racing Bike & More for the 4 man team bracket, local shop 66 Fixed 2 man team took home 1st place and Eric Stubbs took first place in the individual bracket with an impressive 15 laps completed.. We cross our fingers this even comes back next year with more riders and sponsors.. It was a great event and great turn out.. enjoy the photo’s and congrats to all the racers and winners! For the full coverage go to our gallery...

Bike crushes into a car during bicycle race

Nice parking job, though why the heck this road wasn’t closed for a bike race I have no idea. I do not speak Spanish, but I did hear word “puta” being thrown around right after the accident.
