Whether you want to rustle up porridge or a chicken jambalaya, British Cycling has a new series of recipes aimed at riders

Whether you’re a casual rider, sportive enthusiast or road racer, nutrition may play a large part in your preparations and recovery.

There’s plenty of information available out there about what foods are good for cyclists, those which release energy quickly, those which contain a lot of muscle-repairing protein and those which should give you energy over a long ride.

Now, British Cycling have launched a series of recipes on the Insight Zone sector of their website, with a host of recipe cards available to download.
