I have been asked about what I will be eating during the day on my ride and will I be carrying food with me
I will be riding anywhere around 8 hours each day, some days I could be in the saddle for well over 10 hours due to the hills and uneven terrain, so this will burn a lot of energy and calories, around calories 6000 a day to be exact!
Burning 6000 calories a day is equal to 24 cheeseburgers a day! or losing 1.7 pounds in weight each day, a total of 85lbs over the 50 days, thats 6 stone in weight!!
I’m so thankful that PowerBar will be keeping me fully fuelled for my entire Challenge and have kindly supplied me with 50 days worth of energy!
PowerBar have kindly supplied me with all of the following to take, before, during and at the end of each day to keep me fully fit and energised for my challenge
The PowerBar Ride Energy Bar to consume one during the ride to keep energy levels up, these are a great source of carbohydrates and protein and weigh 10g per bar, also with magnesium to support normal energy metabolism https://www.powerbar.eu/en_INT/energy-bars
The PowerBar Clean Whey Bar to consume one bar post ride, these are high in protein and low in sugar with each bar weighing 45g https://www.powerbar.eu/en_INT/energy-bars
The PowerBar Energize Bar to consume one bar during the day or before I set off to keep energy levels up, containing a dual source carb mix which is easy to digest on the go https://www.powerbar.eu/en_INT/energy-bars

Finally the PowerBar Protein Plus Whey Isolate drink, a Premium quality whey protein isolate including BCAAs (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine) which is free from sugar and fat, I will drink one bottle of this either as soon as I finish my days ride or just before I go to bed https://www.powerbar.eu/en_INT/protein-powder
