Grub for the Ride
Ah, Fudge Nuts by Picky Bars A ($ 4 per bar, ryekasport.com) is date-based, has a 4:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio and is very tasty. Clif Bar’s spiced pumpkin pie and hot chocolate bars B ($ 2 per bar, clifbar.ca) let you fuel with seasonal favours. Each bar has a good mix of carbohydrates, protein, fat and fibre. Another bar for the season is Skratch Labs Anytime Energy Bar with cherries and pistachios C ($ 4 per bar, ryekasport.com), which is also made with oats, nut butter, sea salt, brown rice crisps and quinoa crisps. Give the cyclist on your list something sweet, like a few maple-syrup Endurance Tap gels D ($ 3.30 per gel, ryekasport.com).
