We haven’t spent any of the last couple of months posting about cycling nutrition and it’s finally time to start. While we’ve been researching and testing different products and methods of staying energized on a tour, we’ve kept quiet on the blog, but we are just about ready to release some of our findings. As you know it’s winter here in South Korea, so we’ve been freezing our boots off training for the upcoming Long Haul for Hunger, an 8,500 mile bicycle tour for charity. I’ll never forget the first week of training and nutrition testing when we set our base levels for the test, refueling on water alone before, during, and after our rides. Those 75-mile rides with four loaded panniers were more than painful and the last miles of each day were excruciating.
Over the next week or two we’ll be featuring a series of articles on cycling nutrition. We encourage all of you to comment back on your own experiences with nutrition supplements, recipes, and anything else that might be helpful to our readers. Remember to check out our 8,500 mile trek at www.theultimatetrek.com. We are accepting entrants if you can ride all or part of the trek, drop us an email or comment.
