A typical day’s meals on Bike tour

Breakfast is usually fairly hearty, and includes Cereal, sausage, eggs, fried beans and toast with marmalade or jam and Juice or Fruits. Of course, you’ll also have hot drinks, generally a choice of tea, coffee or hot chocolate. Let your guide know if you are still hungry, or even if you think you could ‘pack in a few more bites’. Our cooks always try to provide more food than necessary to ensure everyone gets enough.

Fresh Fruits: There will also most likely be some seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables tucked away somewhere as well.

Healthy, ready-to-eat snacks

  • Dark chocolate (it’s a superfood, it gives you energy, and … it’s chocolate)
  • Protein or energy bars
  • Dried fruit and dehydrated veggie snacks
  • Pickles

Lunch is either packed for you, or we stop for a hot cooked lunch. A typical packed lunch is a boiled egg, sandwiches, a portion of chicken, crisps, snack bar, fresh fruit and a drink. Hot lunch- Rice or Spaghetti with Chicken, Vegetable Salad and Juice. Evening Tea is served at the end of the day’s riding, once you get to camp. In addition to tea and other hot drinks, there are plenty of peanuts, popcorn, biscuits and snacks to help restore some of the energy you’ve just burned off.

Dinners are quite filling. They usually begin with a nice healthy vegetable soup, and then a main course such as chicken curry, spaghetti Bolognese, fresh vegetables, and plenty of rice, pasta or potatoes, followed by a yummy dessert such as pancakes or banana fritters with maple syrup or nutella!
