Bananas – a superfood for cyclists?

Fyffes is delighted to be able to support the Dartmoor Classic again this year and wish everyone a great time. Feedback from cyclists suggests that bananas might well be the superfood for cyclists:

  • They’re natural, tasty and easy to eat
  • They’re practical - a good size and shape for your jersey pocket, pretty easy to peel whilst on the move and easy to grip even with gloves on
  • The 3 natural sugars are each digested at a different rate, giving you an immediate/ bit later/ a lot later energy boost
  • The potassium helps guard against muscle cramp
