With contributions from Lizzy Banks, Tiffany Cromwell, Hannah Barnes and more.
Eat Bike Cook brings together 40 delicious easy recipes created to meet the energy demands of cyclists, with tips, hacks and food diaries from women cyclists, both professionals and enthusiastic amateurs. There are quick, up-and-at-‘em breakfast ideas to charge you up pre-ride, energy-boosting back pocket picnics to keep you going strong while you’re on the road and wonderfully restorative main meals to share with friends once you’ve crossed the finish line.
At the heart of the book are 19 illustrated food diaries by Kitty Pemberton-Platt, whose drawings have lit up Instagram with their honest visualisations of what female cyclists eat to fuel their rides. Contributors range from elite athletes like Tiffany Cromwell, Lizzy Banks and Hannah Barnes to adventure traveller and bike packers like Vendangi Kulkarni to weekend warriors who use cycling to find some freedom in their every day life.
As well as providing inspiration on easy and tasty ways to fuel for days on the bike, Eat Bike Cook is a celebration of the female cycling community: of the great chat in a cafe mid-ride, of the handful of Haribos that gets you through the last 25km and the shared beer and burger at the end of the day.
