Budget-friendly energy snacks and drinks for cycling


When you are thirsty and hungry during cycling, there are several choices of food and liquid item which you can consider, depending on your budget. If budget is not an issue, you can buy energy gel, energy bar, hydration tablets and recovery drinks from health and sports nutrition shops to consume.

If you want to save money and yet be able to replenish and rehydrate your body during cycling, do read on the practice which I have been doing for many years in my cycling journey. Both bread and biscuits replace the energy bars while isotonic drinks such as Pocari Sweat, 100 Plus replace hydration and recovery drinks.

For drinking water, you have the option to purchase from petrol kiosks along your cycling route, or you can simply fill your water bottles with tap water for free. Tap water in Singapore is safe for drinking. 


  • Sunshine Bun: $1
  • Pocari Sweat: $1
  • Drinking Water: $0.50
  • Cream Crackers Biscuits: $0.20
