Why don't you see Pro's eating bananas?
Just wondering! Too difficult to peel? Slippy skins a danger to the peloton?
And what real food do you like to eat on the bike? Soreen for me. Difficult to chew in winter and I must like quite the plonker biting huge chunks off the full loaf as I cycle, but it's tasty and does the job nicely. Especially when it sticks to the teeth!
