Why Supplements Matter

Road cycling demands endurance, strength, and focus.

To perform at your best on the bike, your body needs the right nutrients to fuel your rides, aid in recovery, and enhance overall performance.

While a well-balanced diet is essential, supplements can help fill in the gaps and provide additional support.

Pre ride nutrition

Before you hit the road, it's crucial to prepare your body for the demands of cycling.

Here are some supplements that can give you a pre ride boost:

  • Oats: Known for their high fibre content, which provides a sustained release of energy, keeping you fueled and ready for the road ahead. They are also a great source of complex carbohydrates, giving you the endurance you need to power through those long rides.
  • Pre Workout: A pre workout supplement can improve focus and mental alertness, helping you stay in the zone during long rides.
  • Creatine: Known for its ability to enhance strength and power, creatine can benefit road cyclists by increasing explosive energy and improving overall performance.
  • BCAAs: Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are essential for muscle recovery and can help prevent muscle breakdown during intense rides. Look for a BCAA supplement with added electrolytes to stay hydrated.

During the ride

As you push your limits on the bike, it's important to stay hydrated and maintain your energy levels.

Consider these supplements to optimise your performance during those long rides:

  • Electrolytes: Road cycling can lead to significant sweat loss, and replenishing electrolytes is vital for proper hydration and preventing muscle cramps. Look for electrolyte powders or tablets to add to your water bottle.
  • Carbohydrate Supplements: During extended rides, your body needs a continuous supply of fuel. Carbohydrate supplements like SportsFuel 101 can provide a quick energy boost and help delay fatigue, and if you need an extra boost add Carb+ to your mix.

Recovery and repair after a cycling event

After a challenging ride, proper recovery is crucial for muscle repair and growth.

The following supplements can aid in recovery and support your overall training goals:

  • Protein Powder: Protein is essential for repairing and building muscles. Opt for a high-quality protein powder, like our locally sourced whey protein, to support muscle recovery and growth.
  • Glutamine: Glutamine is an amino acid that plays a vital role in muscle tissue repair and immune system function. Supplementing with glutamine can help minimize muscle breakdown and support recovery.

Whether you're a recreational rider or a professional cyclist, supplements can play a significant role in optimizing your performance and supporting your goals.
