Cycling Nutrition Tips
Let's start with the fact that hydration drives everything else. If you're dehydrated, your body won't absorb any nutrients effectively. And the more dehydrated you become, the less effective your body functions.
Apart from hydration, cycling food containing carbohydrates drives high-intensity activities like cycling. Without them, your performance drops. Although fat fuels low- to-moderate workout cycling sessions, you need carbohydrates for higher intensity cycling.
Standard cycling nutrition guidelines recommend 30-60 grams of carbohydrate consumption per hour of aerobic exercise. If you use a power meter during your ride, you should target your carbohydrate intake to replenish 20 to 30 percent of the kilojoules of output you're doing per hour.
For example, a medium-sized, reasonably fit cyclist riding steadily will burn 500 kilojoules per hour. As a result, that cyclist should count on incorporating 25 to 37 grams of carbohydrates from cycling food per hour during rides longer than 90 minutes.
