Diet of every sportsperson is important because they exert themselves more than other people, need a lot of energy, have to keep up the good health and take care of themselves during the contests and matches. When it comes to cyclists, they have a particular order in which they eat their food, avoid fast foods and maintain a good health. Here in this post, we will talk about how to eat like a professional cyclist. Let’s ride along!

On a side note, if you are looking for bikes, used Trek bikes are available at the best rates.

1. Before a Ride

Oatmeal with a handful of almonds or walnuts, a few teaspoons of molasses for the iron and taste, and raisins or dried fruit.

According to experts, this is a good meal to start your day in the best manners. The meal has carbs, protein and contains other nutritional elements needed for a biker. Moreover, instead of water, using milk to cook oatmeal and these provide more iron than molasses.

2. On the Ride

Sandwich made with an English muffin, bacon, an over-easy egg, and a thick slice of Tillamook cheddar

As we know eggs are really good to start your day and when it comes to not feeling hungry. If you add just two eggs in the starting meal, it will keep you filled for the whole day. For the riders, eggs let them feel contented and control their appetite. Moreover, the fats and protein are also helpful during a ride. Bagel and carbs will provide the cyclist with the energy they need while they are on the ride.

If you are looking for bikes, used Trek bikes are available at the best rates.

3. When Cycling Event is Near You

Serrano (Spanish cured ham) on a baguette with olive oil and tomato.

When the racing contest is approaching near, the cyclists need something that can keep them filled for hours and provide energy as well. This meal is what they need in the racing days. They are easy to digest and offer a lot of energy as well.

4. After a Ride

Sweet potato, kale, broccoli, and roasted beets stir-fried with eggs or chicken in olive oil and coconut milk.

Meal after a ride is very important because the riders spend a lot of time riding and feel really exhausted. They need food to overcome the energy deficiency and not let them feel full or sleepy. The above-mentioned meal is the best option. Girls need more iron so they can go with lean beef instead of chicken or eggs.

5. Bonus – After a Race

Pasta or risotto with Parmesan cheese and olive oil.

Racing is tough and it affects the whole body. When the competition is over, the bikers need something that can help them recover sooner and earlier. We have put up a meal option that has been recommended by the experts for riders to eat like a professional. The meal will help them in muscle recovery.
