I try to ride my bike daily. Somewhere between 10 - 12 miles depending on the route, and at least once every 2 weeks try to get in a 50 mile ride (I have a down day, the day after the 50 miler). I would like to know what the rest of you do to prepare and recover from the rides. The reason I ask, is that I feel fatigued, the next day, especially in the legs. Once I get back on my bike I'm fine. Just wondering if I am missing something. I have a small helping of fruit or ceral about 20 minutes before the ride begins. I usually drink an 8 oz glass of pedialyte and have a banana, then stretch after each ride. I don't like eating "big" after any ride. If I am on a LONG ride, I have PB, H + B sandwahiches and protien bars. I take with me a mixture of Pedialyte and water (50/50).
