UNIVERSAL TRUTH OF CYCLING #26: THE BEST POST RACE / CENTURY / EPIC RIDE RECOVERY IS DRINKING A BEER IN THE SHOWER.
What? Never done this? Stop reading this and go try it out. The combination of super-hot shower and ice-cold beer is one of life’s greatest pleasures. And no, we’re not exaggerating. We have one good friend (who requested anonymity) who, while in Mexico, pulled off the ultimate trifecta – hot shower, ice-cold beer and personal service from his lovely wife. It was such a massive coup that, even though he was in his late 30’s he texted soon after. An American hero. But enough about Jason Elm. One last thing: 18mph is not responsible for any personal injury as a result of overindulgence or broken glass. So don’t drop the bottle. Or just transfer it to an unbreakable cup, okay? Now enjoy. And you’re welcome.
Knowing that I’m coming home to this (sans Corona) is 1/3 I go on rides/runs on lazy days.
