Favorite after ride comfort food.

As cyclists, we all know how invigorating riding can be, and how regular riding can keep you in pretty good shape. And we all know there is only one thing we all like as much as riding, and we all know what that is, right? Why, it's eating, of course! We like food.

So, what's everyone like after a ride? For me, and no particular order:

-Pizza, from the Chateau in Waltham, MA.
-Leftover meatloaf.
-Ice cream. Hoodsies are perfectly acceptable. (But I miss the little wooden spoons they used to include)
-Pasta, in olive oil with veggies.
-Blue Ribbon Barbeque. (How DO they get the green beans to taste like that?)
-Chili. I learned to make vegetarian chili last year. Not a bad recipe. I'm not a vegetarian, but Veggie Chili is good, dammit!)

I had a Jamocha shake from Arby's after the century Saturday that was awfully good. But when I don't have to drive, I like a beer or three. After a bout four consecutive days of long rides like on BRAG, I like to hit a trough (AYCE buffet such as Ryan's or Western Sizzlin').

There's this food stall right near the bridge, they have these Chinese lamb-cumin buns, and pork dumplings, for $1. I usually stop there and eat before the last few miles home. Salt = electrolytes right?

I have learned I like to protein load after a long hard ride, I find my muscles recover much faster and I don't have as much soreness. So for me it's usually a high protein bar (builders bar) as soon as I get off the bike, then I follow that up with after I get cooled down with a Tuna fish salad sandwich on homemade whole wheat bread with lots of dill pickle and a Corona lite. may sound weird but so am I...

Right after the ride, Hammer Recoverrite with blue berries, banana or with whatever berries are available at the time. Then what ever the wife has in mind for supper.

Immediately after the ride, a cup of chicory coffee from my thermos. After that on the way home, perhaps a chocolate milk. Once home, something with a bunch of protein.

Depends on the severity of the ride. up to about 4 hours and just a sandwich and a Beer- real beer that is and not a lager. Up to about 6 hours and the sandwich will be augmented by extra Pie (Pie is also partaken on the rides)

But what gets me are those gruelling long rides where I have eatencarbo-hydrates all day- worn the legs and body out completely and the brain will just about work. I am not a lover of fast food normally but after a really tiring ride I have to have some grease and fat. KFC is the norm but I have been known to get in a full English breakfast just to help with the weight gain after the days exertion.

Fine beer, but I usually settle for a Lite and a tenderlion. Or just the beer sometimes.

Getting hungry reading this thread, lots of good stuff here.
After a long ride on a cooler day I like a bowl of soy ramen from a Japanese restaurant with maybe one roll on the side.
Or gorging at a Chinese restaurant. Or Italian. Or Mexican.

2 eggs over medium, sausage patties, hash browns, whole wheat toast, coffee. At a great diner about a mile from the LBS where my club's Sat morning rides originate. I typically add some miles when the ride ends, and plan my route to stop at the diner, then have an easy spin back to the car. Absolutely love it!

There are a few places I'll stop at after a ride, one is a French bakery/cafe, I always have their delicious French Onion soup. Another is a fish and chips cafe (owned by a cycling friend), everything is good here, the cole slaw is the best. I tend to eat light after a ride, but it's fun to sit and relax with friends.
