Protein is essential for energy, but it also helps keep your belly full so you don’t end up famished before you’ve completed your long bike ride. Nut butters, such as peanut or almond butter, are a good source of protein, and smearing some on a whole-wheat bagel or pita is one way to power up before your bike ride. Yogurt, milk and cheese are also good sources of protein, making them good preride snacks. A serving of lean meat, such as white-meat chicken, is another way to supply your body with plenty of protein the night before or morning of your long bike ride.
