We all know breakfast is the most important part of the day, especially if you’ve got a big day of cycling ahead. Cycling professional Trevor Ward says “While you don’t need the 6,000 calories a Tour de France rider needs, you can carb load at breakfast and enjoy a smoothie.” We’ve created a few inspiring breakfast combos using our Premier Inn breakfast menu, perfect for whatever ride you’re going on.
It’s not just your bike you need to remember for a cycling break! Cycling expert Trevor Ward shares his top 5 items to pack before setting off.
1. Waterproofs are essential - especially for a cycling break in the UK! Clothes should be stretchy without being baggy and the stiffer the soles on your shoes the better.
2. Ensure you have helmets for every member of the family.
3. Basic tools such as spare tubes, a pump and multi-tool are good to have just in case of emergencies.
4. Pack a lightweight rucksack. It’s so useful for carrying snacks, drinks, tools and waterproofs.
5. Don’t forget to pack a couple of bike locks for any pub or café stops you make along the way.
