Useful info

Riding a bike is an aerobic activity that make you burn a lot of energy. That’s why a healthy diet is important. A biker should never cut on carbs (pasta, potatoes, grains) and proteins (meat, eggs, fish and legumes). Fruit and vegetables are very important to ensure your body the recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals. You shouldn’t cut all the sweet foods but you should prefer fruit tarts. Never forget to drink a lot of water (both before and during sport activity), fruit juices or sugared tea. To warm up is a good habit before starting cycling, by doing so you will avoid any muscular soreness. After training, stretching is recommended in order to loosen up muscles. 7 to 8 hours sleep every night will give you back the energy you burnt during the day and help you feel fit the day after and ready for a new excursion.
