Winter can be hard for cyclist lovers… In Canada, you must train inside and most of the time alone. It’s cold, it’s dark and everybody gets sick! But these conditions also make it perfect to cook! What’s better than food to comfort you and put you in a chill mood. You can’t deny the wonderfulness of the smell of a good meal getting ready in your slow cooker or some hot muffins/cookies coming out of the oven!
It’s been a while already that I wanted to start cooking my snack and nutrition for my bike rides and triathlon races. There are many reasons and benefits to it: cost efficiency, sustainability and most likely healthier for the body (for a lot of products at least).
My first rainy Fall & Winter in Vancouver seemed the perfect timing to test some recipes and find my favorites ones for next Spring/Summer. Nutrition being so popular and trendy these days, it is easy to find books and websites to be inspired from.
My criteria to help you a pick a good recipe/snack on a bike:
My winner: CAPPUCCINO BARS*

What I like about it:
How about you too take some time to cook for yourself this Winter? Gather your bike partners on a weekend day and make it a cooking day! You girls are going to be so happy and proud next summer when you’ll be eating your own delicious homemade bar!! This is what the community is about…spending time together on the bike, but also all year long off your bike!
