Good nutrition plays such an important role whether it's helping to meet the demands of everyday bike commuting or completing those long treks of bicycle touring. Other than pre ride carb loading and post ride protein recovery, nutrients necessary for maintaining a healthy immune system will keep you going when the going gets tough wherever your rides may lead.
We appreciate good food and nutrition so much that we opened our organic country store almost six years ago. Since that time we have expanded not only our store's ability to meet the varying needs of our customer's dietary concerns but have learned a lot along the way. Over the past few months we decided to make our store's products all organic and non GMO as more folks are educating themselves about proper nutrition and how it contributes to their general health and well being. When the folks at red ace organics reached out to us with an opportunity to test sample their products we were more than happy to considering their California farm supplier is a hundred percent organic and GMO free.
Usually when I think of the types of ride performance supplements found in bike shops I think of GU, Red Bull and other junk food caffeine sugar spikes which actually deplete the body of good ride fuel. When the body is fueled with such synthetic junk food it's like a gas hog vehicle that gets very poor mileage. We're excited to be promoting such an excellent performance supplement that benefits not only your bike rides but supports your body's good health and longevity.
Before I sign off of this post I also want to make mention of what I refer to as "my green drink" that I like to have everyday with hemp milk or with water. I've tried a few over the years and have found my favorite for the past few years to be from Amazing Grass and their Original Superfood Powder. It's very easy and convenient to pack and is of course organic and non GMO.
