It’s a common misconception that riding your bike gives you a free pass to eat exactly what you want. A misconception that I regularly lean on to justify my post-ride munch. While the image of that burrito might get you through the last few miles in actual fact, the longer you ride, the more important the consideration of nutrition and supplementation
Considering what you eat straight after riding is just as important as before and during exertion; planning ahead and a careful routine could play a key part in improving your stamina.
But that doesn’t answer the question what should you be eating and drinking after your ride.

So I’m over in NYC for work again. Already had a few rides in with #5thnyc and #5thldn Matt who’s over here also putting in design work. Getting up at 4 in the morning to watch the guys race in the Grant’s tomb crit on saturday was awesome but mad cold. While I left London’s +15c on thursday New York is still stuck in the 0′s. Too cold to get the gloves off for iphone snaps so there’s only a handfull of photos from that race. When the crit was over and done with we all rode 9W up to piermont and back. Some proper headwind hammering with Dave saw us pretty satisfied with a donut sit down until the legs started responding to orders again. Dave only had one boiled egg though. The scot has started to assimilate with the American lifestyle and gone on a diet. With the results he’s had in the first few races this season it seems to do him good.
Sunday gave us some sweet sunny +10′s so me and Matto headed out for some recovery/food sightseeing along the Hudson up to Nyack and back. When I lived over here we didnt really know about river road and we mostly rode our trackbikes up and down 9w. So I still take a lot of pleasure in hammering up the rolling climbs along the hudson and the slightly brutal ending up alpine hill. So enjoy some random iphone snaps from me and Matto and holla if you are a new yorker and see us out there. Click Read more to see all photos.
Good saturday of racing allover for the 5th. Josh, Kendal, Ed and Erik where out racing under the steel skies of London. While I scuttled in midfield Josh took 2nd in the 4s. Kendal stayed out with a compatriot for most of the 4/3/2′s but got taken back towards the end. These photos where taken by Viv at the redbridge spring warmups. On Sunday Josh, Kendal, Ed and Rudy went on to race the San Fairy Ann Sprint Crits down in kent, more on that soon. In other news Dave put in some hard work stateside and took 1st in his cat 5/4 field in Jersey on saturday and third in the Cat5 field in central park CRCA race on Sunday.
