Ted’s Tips: Fuel Properly

Ted’s Tips: Fuel Properly

Posted: March 14th, 2017

This week, we bring you a tip from Ted King that will keep you going even on the longest of rides!

There’s no shortage of exquisite food (and wine) in Napa Valley and there’s no reason to avoid them when riding. But don’t choke down the latest rabbit chow energy food purely because your riding buddies or glossy magazines say it’s the latest and greatest. Relying on real foods—ones where you can pronounce the ingredients and inherently know their macro nutritional benefits — will help you ride longer and faster, and recovery more quickly for the next outing. Take UnTapped it’s an on-the-go waffle made with ingredients, maple syrup, real raspberries, or real coffee, all for real sports nutrition. And if you’re imbibing on vino the day before a ride, just be sure to drink water like a fish as well. 1:1 water to wine is a good rule of thumb. Ride to eat, eat to ride.
