The potato is definitely a strange but good combo. I usually make this for the kiwi after a long ride. Potatoes are easy to digest and a simple carbohydrate that restores glycogen ASAP. The maple syrup is the another source of sugar/carbs. I use kefir/dairy it gets in probiotics and it’s a good source of protein. Cycling is so different than running. There is more blood flow to the stomach, so solid food and certain dairy in a post ride snack can still be tolerated (at least for James). Nuttzo topping because let’s face it, it’s great on everything.
