Fuelling for Endurance – SPR Chicks Event

The NSW Institute of Sport say…

“If you intend to drive a car for several hours, it wouldn’t make much sense to start that drive with the fuel light on. It’s going to be far more efficient for your drive to put enough petrol in the tank”.  The same thinking can be applied to going on a long hills ride or taking part in a multi-day cycling event.

Come join Nutritionist and Executive Coach, Lesley Burch and Passionate Foodie Mandy McEvoy (both SPR Women) for an interactive afternoon in the kitchen discussing how to fuel for more than the Saturday club ride.  Recipes will be demonstrated and up for sampling, plus you’ll walk away a few little goodies designed to keep you energised whilst cycling and recovering well so you can keep turning those pedals!

Venue:  Earthwise Community, 315 Bagot Road, Subiaco, WA, 6008

Time:  2:00pm – 4:00pm
