Hashtag Snacks. What is all the fuss about.

I have been asked quite a few times now, “what is #toursnacks, #girosnacks, #thereandbacksnacks ?”

Easy, it is this cycling freaks way of staying alert during the wee small hours that Aussie cycling fans have to watch the sport we love.

I am not sure when it started, but I suspect it was off the back of the guide I wrote a while back about watching a grand tour in Australia. Snacking towards the end of a stage in a grand tour was one way to keep me alert. I am pretty handy on the tooth, so any reason to chomp down on some grub late at night sounds good to me.

With excellent support from Cycling Central, it has become a thing. It happens when there is 50kms left in a road stage, or a ore determined time for ITT and TTT stages. The word will go out and the masses respond with some truly excellent snacks. I even gave the #girosnacks a plug on the blog a few times last year.

So join in everyone. And the best thing is, you can ride off the calories the next day.
