A must-have recipe book designed for cyclists of all levels, written by Alan Murchison – a Michelin-starred chef and champion athlete who now cooks for British Cycling’s elite athletes. His easy-to-make and nutritionally balanced meals will help cyclists reach their cycling performance goals – this is flavoursome food to make you go faster.

They are all quick and easy to prepare, and are made from ingredients that are readily available in any local supermarket.

A good diet won’t make a sub-standard cyclist into a world beater, but a poor diet can certainly make a world class or any ambitious cyclist sub-standard. However, an optimised diet, whatever your potential, will help you reach your own personal performance goals.
