Yes, eggs can be good pre-cycling fuel when paired with a carbohydrate 2-4 hours before you jump on the bike. One large egg has 70 calories, 6 grams of protein, 0 grams of carbohydrates, and 13 essential vitamins and minerals.

Muscles rely on carbohydrates for energy, so if you choose to eat eggs pre-ride, it’s important to also include a source of

carbs like toast or fruit

to optimize your performance on the bike.
