    Hot Weather Post Ride Snack

    Cold water melon,cantaloupe,cucumber, and mango slices with fresh squeezed lime. Very refreshing after a hot 100 degree ride. Did I forget a frosty dark ale for kicks, too hot for pie. Lp

    Never too hot for pie but that sounds like a refreshing snack.

    Yes! Cool cubes of cantaloupe, honey dew melon, water melon, pineapple, grapes are abosultely awesome right after a hot ride. Had some that was on ice in the back of my car last Saturday after 21 miles with a friend. Was 80 when started 8:30 am, 93 degrees when done.

    I'd likely stop with just the watermelon. It would be A dark green round seedless one, and I'd probably eat half of it.

    Cantaloupe or apples, really cold and fresh, makes my mouth water just thinking about them after a ride.

    Watermelon & pineapple does it for me!
    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    Home made smoothie.

    Whatever fruit I have in the fridge (strawberries, blueberries, peaches), whirred together with yogurt or buttermilk and some jam or maple syrup for sweetness.
