Ride for Fun & Fitness

New to this year’s riding series is a Ride for Fun & Fitness program that adults and youth are invited to participate in as a way to measure the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. The program is completely voluntary and not required to participate in the ‘Liking for Biking’ riding series.

The Ride for Fun & Fitness program offers incentives to adults for measuring their BMI, blood pressure, weight, and blood sugar at the start, during and end of the ‘Liking for Biking’ riding series. The information is kept confidential and used by healthcare professionals to see the impact that an active lifestyle has on individuals. Adults will receive a Fitbit activity tracker, participation t-shirt, and a gift card to Breakaway Bike and Fitness Shop.

Participating youth will not have health measurements recorded, however, they will be incentivized by the number of Saturdays they ride in the ‘Liking for Biking’ series. Youth incentives include a participation t-shirt, gift cards to places like Modoc’s Market and Breakaway Bike and Fitness Shop. Individuals who prefer to ride for fun are not required to opt into the fitness program.

From May 5 through September 1, anyone who is interested in riding their bike during the Liking for Biking series is invited to meet at the new Parkview Wabash Hospital pavilion located near the pond at 9:00 a.m. on the first Saturday of the month. A member of the Visit Wabash County team will serve as the point of contact each month.

Take Care of YOU

Before and During your ride

· Eat a solid breakfast, but don’t eat so much that you are uncomfortable. Hydrate!

· Miles 0-20: Hydrate early and often. Drink before you’re thirsty and you’ll be a lot happier at mile 95!  Eat something solid like a nutrition bar. Even if you’re still a bit full from breakfast, make sure you eat a full bar in the first hour.

·  Miles 20-50: Drink 1-2 21 ounce bottles with electrolyte drink mix. Eat more solid food like an energy bar and add in some sugary food like a Powerbar Chew, or banana.

·  Miles 50-70: This is the point on your 100-mile ride when your body begins to burn through its glycogen storage. This means you need to consistently refuel for good performance in the second 50 miles. We recommend a balance of quick-to-digest energy bars or chews. At this stage in the ride, eating a light meal would be fine as well. Think about getting the energy you need for miles 80-100 now.

·  Miles 70-100: This will likely be your last 75-90 minutes of riding. Drink at least 1-2 bottles of electrolyte hydration mix, and begin to introduce your short-term energy products. Gels and chews and other quick-to-digest nutrition works great at this stage of the ride. If you like using caffeine don’t hesitate to use it, but be sure to drink enough to avoid further dehydration.

After the ride

RAUH-Brothers-300x199· Keep hydrating! Use 1-2 bottles of full strength electrolyte drink mix, and after that switch to water. Nothing worse than cramping after your big ride!

·  Recover. Get your feet up in the air. If you can sit, don’t stand. If you can lie down, don’t sit. Add a quick-acting recovery mix that tastes great, like our favorite Fluid Recovery Chocolate. (It is amazing with a banana, peanut butter, and almond milk blended into a shake).

·  Eat REAL FOOD! You’ve ridden all day and used portable, high quality sports nutrition to perform your best. The meal you eat after your ride is a great time to find real food. Don’t sweat the calories too much either. You don’t want to consume too much, but your body needs extra nutrition to repair itself.

Plan your next century: That’s right. You just achieved your goal and it was super fun. Get right back on the horse and sign up for another big ride, you won’t regret it! -Source: TheFeed.com
