5 snacks to give you energy on the road.

posted by on March, 12, 2015 in Bike Wear Direct

If you are out on your bike for a long time it can be physically exhausting. Riding your bike can require more care and attention than being in a car, and if you lose your attention for just a second, massive accidents can happen.

We put together this blog with some great snacks that will keep you going on long journeys!

Chopped banana and peanut butter.

Chop up a banana and add a teaspoon of peanut butter. Carry this with you in a small tub/container. The natural sweetness in fruit takes longer to metabolize than the processed sugars you'll find in sweets of chocolate and the protein in peanut butter provides a long-lasting form of energy.

Dried fruits and nuts

Nuts contain a mix of good fat and protein, making them a slow-burning food that provides sustained energy. Dried fruit provides sweetness, but with the added benefits of fibre.  A small handful throughout your journey will give you a healthy energy boost.


Yoghurt is great because it tastes so good and is a highly nutritious food. Having a yogurt mid-drive provides appetite-satisfying protein, and a clutch of vitamins and minerals, sure to get you alert and your taste-buds happy!

A whole grain cereal bar

Cereal bars aren't just for breakfast! They're the perfect snack for when you’re out on your bike. Much healthier than a chocolate bar, a cereal bar will give you that boost you need while still tasting delicious! Choose bars with at least 5 grams of fibre and protein, but with less than 15 grams of sugar.

Cheese skewers

On average, cheese contains around 6 - 7 grams of protein per ounce, providing long lasting energy. Spearing cubes of cheese and pineapple, tomatoes or grapes on toothpicks and storing them in a tub or container can be a perfect healthy and energising snack for the road. 

We hope you have found our suggestions helpful. If you have any tips for your fellow bikers please tweet them to us @bikeweardirect or write on out facebook page here.
