Veteran cycling coach explains where many cyclists go wrong when it comes to nutrition


 
PRLog - July 30, 2014 - DERRY, U.K. -- Veteran cycling coach Martin Birney of SportActive has recently published a new guide in which he explains the common mistakes road cyclists make with regards to nutrition and hydration. In order to help as many people as possible, he is making his guide available for free online.

As Martin explains…

“Undoubtedly the most prominent problem I encounter is that cyclists think they need to eat excessive amounts before a ride. However, not only is this not true, if they fail to leave at least an hour between eating and cycling, this can actually inhibit their ability to perform. Another common mistake cyclists make is carrying sugary drinks, particularly soft drinks. Although their high sugar content may give you a 20 minute boost, this will be swiftly followed by a significant dip in energy levels, leaving you with less energy than before! Far better is to carry an energy bar, pieces of fruit or a sandwich instead, as these will release energy slowly and can usually be fitted into pockets just as easily.

“This is just one of the topics I cover in my new guide, “How to become an expert road cyclist: Top tips to help you improve your experience of one of the world’s most popular individual sports”, which I am making available for free online. Full of information on everything from how to use gears and brakes correctly to what constitutes good cycling etiquette, this guide is a must for everyone looking to improve their performance and increase their enjoyment of this much-loved sport.
