Food To Pack On A Long Biking Ride
On my first road trip from Bombay to Goa, I still remember, I got these unbearable hunger pangs as I reached Kolhapur. I stopped at a random dhaba for some unhealthy food which left me feeling lethargic later on. This was a bit of a dampener on the road trip, but as all bikers say, the first road trip is always a learning experience. After that I did some research on which foods to take with me, and I have been carrying them with me ever since. Check out some foods for motorcycle trips below!
Carry any kind of nuts, and make your own trail mix. You can include a huge variety of nuts. They are great little protein packed foods. Even better, they keep you occupied as you snack on them. Best of all, nuts are surprisingly satiating. 10 almonds will go a long way in satiating hunger around snack time, than say a Snickers bar.
Fruits have multiple benefits and serve as great snacks. They pack well and can withstand a minor beating in your luggage. Fruits are the perfect light snack and provide a nice little boost of energy. Oh, and don’t forget, an apple a day keeps the doctor away!
When I say veggies, I usually only go for carrots and celery. They too can withstand a beating in my luggage and can go for days without getting spoilt. They combine well with nut butters too. It makes for a good healthy snack wherever you are. Best of all, it is light, so no feeling lethargic later on.
Rice cakes are a great addition to enjoying things like hummus. They travel well, but you will need to do your homework before buying them. They are available in all sorts of grades from crap to healthy. Go for brown rice, which is a healthy option.
Oh, and if you haven’t been to goa on your bike yet, it’s time to go! The Panvel-Goa highway is a biker’s dream!
