Mike is an avid cyclist who rides his road bike at least four times a week. His typical rides are 30 to 60 miles. He also participates in endurance rides from 100 to 130 miles. Fuel and fluids are essential to ensure that he stays healthy as he enjoys his hobby. I found The Feed as I tried to find subscription options for him. Most powders, gels, and bars can be pricey and single servings seemed like the best option to try out new products.
Mike is watching the Tour de France as I write up this review. I’ve had to watch it as well and The Feed has been featured several times in commercials and product spots. The Feed is a subscription service that has many products to choose from ranging from snacks to gear. Mike decided not to choose the Pro Box or the Tour de France Box. He selected his own items. He also received the promotional Camel Bak bottle from Team Garmin. He loves these podium bottles! The cost of his box was $22.
I really liked the packaging of the box! The inside of the lid had a personalized message for Mike. The great part about this box is that you can contact them for advice on your unique nutrition needs. Plus they ship 3-day Priority USPS, it took 7 days from placing the order to receive the box.
For his box Mike selected four bars:
- Clif Mojo
- Stinger Honey Waffle
- Pro Bar Fuel Blueberry
- Lara Bar Apple Pie
For energy he selected:
- AccelGel in Citrus Orange
- Snap Infusion SuperCandy mixed berry beans
Hydration is very important for cyclists and Mike wanted to try out several items:
- Skratch labs exercise hydration in raspberry & apple cinnamon
- Fluid Recovery in berry treasure
The Feed also included a welcome booklet and a Book of Goals to track exercise and nutrition. I thought the stickers were great, curious to see what will be included in his box in August. All in all, this is a great way to find great items that Mike can use on long or short rides.
