Post-Ride shakes

Postby richsieb » Sat Jan 05, 2013 14:31 pm

Just wondering what sort of post-ride concoctions most cyclists use. I'm interested to see if it's similar stuff to what i get given for Rugby League recovery, or if it's something different that is favoured.

Very similar to my Union recovery process. Water then beer, sometimes skipping the water.

When I saw the thread title, I thought, now that's low blood sugar!

Usually I just have water or finish off anything in my bottles. Today I was quite tired so I mixed up some chocolate Nesquik into milk and drank that.

And then my OH made me an omelette, how good is that!

For hard rides, maximuscle cyclone blended with orange juice - nice mix of protein and carbs. Normal rides, just water or squash.

Use the search in training section as it has been covered several times in there.

But the short answer seems to be chocolate milk.
