Carbohydrate is the main source of fuel used by your body during high-intensity endurance exercise. Understanding how many carbs you need per hour should be your number one priority when it comes to creating a fuelling plan for your rides.
That’s why the folks at Precision Hydration have built the Quick Carb Calculator, a free tool to help you understand your fuelling needs for your next big ride. Scan the QR code on this page to get some personalised advice.
Once you know your numbers, the newly launched Precision Fuel range makes it easy to hit those numbers by telling you how much carbohydrate is in each serving right on the front of the packaging. No complicated nutritional tables to decipher and zero guesswork. The first products in the range are a gel and an energy drink powder, both of which are Informed Sport Certified (which means it has been tested for banned substances) and contain 30g of carbohydrate per serving.
Precision Hydration are offering one lucky subscriber the chance to win a personalised fuelling and hydration bundle including their Fuel and Hydration ranges worth £100. The winner will then jump on a call to discuss their riding strategy with one of PH’s experts so that they can tailor the advice they send to you based on your riding goals.
