What better way to start the day than making yourself a tasty breakfast, which you can enjoy at home. Learning a few breakfast recipes is really important for cyclists because it can make a big difference before a hard training session or a race. You will learn two pre-ride breakfasts in this article that will get you hooked.


Porridge with coconut and berries

Every cyclist should know how to make the ultimate cycling breakfast – porridge. Luckily, it’s not complicated. The hardest part is the 10 minutes you will have to spend patiently stirring the pot. It will become a nice ritual once you know how tasty the final product is. A serving of this porridge gives you enough simple and complex carbs to prepare you for any type of training or racing.

200 g oats, crushed
mix of berries, handful
200 ml milk

20 g dried coconut, grated
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp coconut sugar


1. Put oats in a saucepan; pour in both milk and water and mix.
2. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes; stir regularly to prevent lumps and sticking to the bottom of the pan.
3. After the mixture turns into a thick porridge, add butter and coconut sugar and stir.
4. Serve the oatmeal dressed with fresh berries and dried coconut.

Banana pancakes with cinnamon

Another home-made breakfast classic are pancakes. The advantage of making them yourself is that you can use a healthy recipe. The pancakes in our recipe are gluten free, they contain a decent amount of protein, fibre, antioxidants, and healthy fats, not just carbs, and they still taste amazing. It might take a bit of practice before you will be able to get the timing and consistency right but don’t worry, even slightly weird-looking pancakes will still be delicious.
