Top Tip: Nutrition Reminders

How to set up regular reminders on your Wahoo Element or Garmin Edge Bike Computer

Race days are hectic. You’ve woken up early, overcome pre-race nerves, and you’re riding in a group. Often, you’re highly focused on maintaining your position in the bunch. With so much going on, it’s easy deviate from your race nutrition plan, especially in later stages of the race when you are fatigued.

During any race, you’ll likely derive most of your energy from carbohydrate-rich products. General guidelines recommend between 30 grams to as much as 90 grams per hour, depending on the length and intensity of your exercise. It’s well known that you’re better off consuming these carbs in small doses rather than one big hit. This will decrease the risk of gastrointestinal symptoms.
