Having said that, some cyclists might find it too stodgy to be the only source of energy on a long sportive or other hard ride. These bars are more suitable for steadier training rides or touring. I tested a chocolate chip bar on a hilly ride through Highlands and and they powered me along nicely.

But I’d recommend the Chocolate Chip bar if you were riding for at least 90 plus minutes. Its has tons of calories and as noted its extremely sweet with 26 grams of sugar. You need to be drinking water when eating the bar. If you are using a sports drink at the same time the drink should be diluted or your stomach might turn on you because of all the sugar. 

If you are planning a training ride or a ride that is long enough to warrant an energy back but not necessarily a sportive, some may find the Clif Bar Energy Bar a bit on the heavy side for a ‘during the ride’ snack. But if you are heading out for an adventure on your bike or participating in a long distance ride or event – with its packed, slow-release ingredients, these bars are ideal.
