Just spend an hour on the trainer (0 farenheit with snow and ice) here in Michigan. Hopped in the shower with a cold Bell's Winter White ale - nothing better.

What are your favorite post ride beverages?

    Two beers..
  • Water, food, shower, pint or two. Maybe more if I don't plan or riding the following day.

    I'm with a matter of fact sometimes I'll fill my bottles with beer! Nothing like a nice pale ale to keep my gears going.[:p]

    After a drink of water, I like nothing better than a large mug or two of of sweet tea.

    Gin and tonic.

    Bombay Sapphire, mind, and with a segment of lime. Mixed with indian tonic water that doesn't have artificial sweeteners.

    None of this Gordon's and diet tonic rubbish.

    Triple espresso (brewed in an Italian "grenade"-style stovetop percolator) in a pint mug topped up with recently boiled water. When at home.


    six pints of Deuchars IPA (or equivalent) - when on tour.

    I went up Alpe d'Huez last year and motivated myself through the last 6 hairpins with the promise of a beer at the top. Duly went into the only bar open and placed my order, only to be told they had no beer (it was the last day of the season). Instead I had a Gini (bitter lemon out of a can). It did NOT hit the spot!

    Tea for me. Darjeeling for preference (Twinings, from the foothills of the Himalayas).

    I usually stop off at a pub about a mile from home and have a pint or three of Bathams. On Sunday I had a pint of lager due to it being rather warm (the weather that is, not the lager) Wheareas the lager was refreshingly cold, it hardly tasted of anything and was significantly more expensive..After tuesday night's ride it was back to the Batham's.

    Pint of milk (skimmed)
    If after a very long ride i'll finish any energy drink in the bottles and make another 500ml's of SiS electrolyte energy drink.

    Beer is for an evening out with mates and only to be consumed in large quantities :):D
