Proper nutrition is important for any cyclist, regardless of whether your commuting to work or competing on a carbon fibre road bike. One of the best forms of nutrition when riding a bike is through energy bars, not only because their ingredients are tailored towards providing the correct balance of fats, sugars and proteins, but also because they fit easily into a jersey pocket or top tube bag. One of our staff's, and indeed customer's, favourites is the Clif Bar, which has been around for over 30 years now. The original Clif Bar was named after founder, Gary Erickson's father, Clifford, and was designed to taste and perform better than other energy bars that were available at the time. This Clif Bar is still available now, albeit in a wider range of flavours, but the range has further extended to contain Clif Bloks, an energy chew that can be eaten throughout a ride.
On of the questions often asked is "Are Clif Bars vegan?" and the answer is, yes! As well as trying to improve the taste and quality of cycling energy bars, Clif Bar are also an ethical company that uses sustainably sourced ingredients where possible and their Clif Bars are plant based and vegan friendly.
