Top 5 nutrition tips for cyclists

Don’t leave fuelling to the last minute

Have a pre-race carb meal 2 hours before exercise in order to top up your energy stores. Do not make the mistake of over-eating however as this may leave you feeling bloated. A regular serving of porridge is likely to hit the spot. You can always top up your energy on the start line with an energy gel. Overeating is one of the most common mistakes of endurance cyclists before big events.
