Len, the driving force behind VeloBarZ, has been involved in Sports Nutrition for decades.
After spontaneous cook duties during bikepacking Estonia trip, Len’s penchant for an adventurous outdoor cooking was born – he put his newly-found skills to work since and never looked back!
He has planned, calculated, and prepared long-lasting nutritious meals for Backcountry Skiing, Mountaineering, Backpacking, Kayaking expeditions and racing events.
VeloBarZ iBook was a pre-cursor of the current site and has been around since 2012.
Stylistically, it was designed as a tribute to venerable Italian Fausto Coppi – Len’s aspiration, and Greg Lemond’s Z-Team (the origin of “Z’ in VeloBarZ). The title itself is a combination of “Velocity/Velocipede” referring both to speedy goodies’ manufacturing and cyclists’ audience, and “Bar” like in energy bar.
VeloBarZ Website is a source of inspiration for all budding home cooking enthusiasts. Since the iBook creation, Len started exploring other avenues, including Baking, to inspire more advanced home chefs. Still Gluten-Free, Vegan, and 100% Healthy!
