Eating and drinking correctly when out on a ride can be hard to get right, as you need to be correctly fuelled to avoid bonking. We enlisted the help of acclaimed WorldTour nutritionist Nigel Mitchell to find out some of the best cycling recipes. Check out his oreo rice cakes, a whopping 2400 calorie ‘Big Day Out’ drink, and an easy sweet and salty gravel trail mix!

You can now pre-order Nigel’s new book, The Cyclist’s Cookbook, from the GCN Shop 👉
