For long rides, particularly when you’re riding at a high-intensity, it’s good to consume products that are high in BCAAs to reduce muscle damage. On a bike, it’s often easier to “drink your calories”, making Roctane Energy Drink a great choice. Sip regularly to maintain a steady flow of calories, supplementing with Energy Gels hourly for an added boost. Using the Stroopwafel as a carrot to get you going in the morning or to the top of the climb can break up the monotony, as well as a variety of flavor. For added energy boosts before climbs or towards the end, look to carry flavors with caffeine.
