G!RO | Meet Rawvelo

April 20, 2018

Our philosophy at Rawvelo is to concentrate on the nutritional benefits of what we make as much as the functional benefits – it’s about simple, natural wholefoods - no refined sugars, nothing made in a lab and no ingredient you wouldn’t recognise the name of.  Just the highest quality organic ingredients combined in a balanced way to make the cleanest, most nutritious and best tasting products we can.

We don’t make spurious claims about how our products can improve your performance based on flawed pseudo-science, we won’t add the latest superfood supplement to our products just for the sake of it, and we will definitely never compromise on the quality of the ingredients we use.  What we do guarantee though is that by taking a natural and holistic approach to your nutrition you will be a healthier athlete in the long-term, and the benefits of that are enormous - you will feel more energised, recover faster, and heal more quickly from injury.

Our Story

As individual athletes, we’ve always taken the food that we eat pretty seriously.  We’ve always aimed to have a balanced healthy diet and wanted to make sure that our food was as healthy and natural as possible – the odd cake or gelato aside!  It just seemed obvious that eating high-quality nutritious foods whenever possible was the best thing to do to stay as healthy as possible. We struggled to find sports nutrition products that met our needs for when we were training or racing.  What was available was loaded with chemicals and refined sugars, cheap ingredients that claimed to ‘deliver’ energy fast with seemingly no thought given to how damaging this could be to your long-term health. They also just didn’t taste great and were often hard to eat or digest, leaving us feeling sick and bloated. So, we resorted to doing things the ‘old fashioned’ way, the way that cyclists of a bygone era had done, eating dried fruits, nuts, bananas –  simple real food.  We soon found that by consuming the right balance of natural wholefoods we were still able to perform just as well as when using chemically enhanced products but felt healthier in general and recovered much faster.

Rawvelo was born from this need, this desire to be clean athletes, to eat the most nutritious food we can to fuel our sport.  A belief that there is a different way to do things, a way that takes into account the long term nutritional benefits of what we eat, a way that is not just about fuel in equals energy out regardless of consequences.

Meet Daisy, G!RO Cafe Manager extraordinaire and all round legend! Since, we took the difficult decision to close the doors of G!RO given the current unprecedented global situation, she has found herself with a bit more time on her hands at home, like many of us doing our bit for the NHS! She decided to write this awesome little blog for us on what she’s doing with all this spare time and how she’s trying to #KeepItGiro whilst we’re closed. She has plenty of awesome ideas and inspiration for how you could win our instagram competition, where you could win a G!RO mussette full of Workshop Coffee. Head over to our instagram to get involved; simply show us how you're keeping it G!RO at home, like Daisy, tag us and add the hashtag #KeepItGiro. We’ll be picking our favourite soon. Now enjoy Daisy’s insight into things that are keeping her sane in this strange, uncertain time.

G!RO x WORKSHOP FLASHPACKING WEEKEND

At the heart of G!RO, and even in the very early planning stages before we opened for business, we have celebrated and championed the synergy between coffee and cycling. In order to create a local hub for local riders, of course, coffee had to be an integral part of that. It seems so synonymous now that cycling and coffee are all part of the same experience. And beyond cycling, coffee has found its way into the very core of our everyday. This luxurious, exotic, rich dark liquid that is the centre point for meetings, catch-ups, dates, working from home, and more to the point - the start and end of a cycle ride. G!RO has based its very being around a cup of coffee.
