A Commuter's Breakfast
National Breakfast Week may have come and gone, but for commuter cyclists breakfast continues to be the most important meal of the day. Whether you cycle twenty minutes to work or an hour and a half, pedal power uses lots of energy. So to ensure you don’t burn out at your computer mid-morning or snack your way to lunch, it’s time to put some real thought into how you start your day.
If you jump straight out of bed and onto your bike chances are not a crumb passes your lips until you get to the office. We’re not about to tell you that you have to get up an hour earlier each day to tuck into a hearty meal (although it may not be a bad idea), but you really should make the time for at least a cereal bar or a quick smoothie before hitting the road, and pack a proper breakfast to enjoy at work once your morning commute is over.
Here are five nutritious and tasty breakfasts to get you started.
