    milkshake compatible water bottle

    This summer I have gotten into having a milkshake during or after I ride - milk, banana, PB, ice, and sometimes add whey and vit C.
    I like to stick the shake in the freezer before riding to get it real cold.

    an old water bottle I have lying around did not take kindly to milkshake use, so I have been using a plastic pint milk container from the grocery store. but that doesn't fit in my bottle cage.

    ergo, I'm looking for a hydration bottle that:
    1. can withstand the rigors of regular freezing and thawing
    2. has some extra clearance around the spout for a thick milkshake

    thanks

    If you're being serious, then you can use a wide-mouth plastic gatorade bottle. I've seen people with those in their bottle cages instead of water bottles, and they fit nicely. (I doubt they had milkshakes in them though)

    You won't find a water bottle that's made for milkshakes. You will also notice that you're the only person who is looking for one.

    You said you drink them after your ride, so I think you should just bring water on your bike and then drink that milky foolishness when you get home.

    I can't imagine riding and wanting to take a sip of something and ending up with a mouthful of thick warm milky stuff. OMG!

    Get those wide mouth water bottles. How short are your rides, that enables you to have a milkshake afterwards?

    A 'clean bottle' will let you unscrew both ends to get the old stuff out.

    I often have mid ride milkshakes but stop and drink them. I think you need to stop thinking about a water bottle, though...

    I don't know where the heck you came up with this milkshake idea, but it seems like more trouble than it's worth. Have you considered substituting some easily portable, preserved genuine food, and lots of water? If I know I'm going to need something to keep me going with no time or space to prepare and eat anything elaborate, I just take a small ziploc bag containing DIY trail mix and a strip or two of dried meat. The stuff will keep without refrigeration, is easy to clean up if it spills, requires nothing but a hand and a mouth to eat, and is dense enough that one needn't eat much of it. If you assemble your own trail mix instead of buying premixes, it's cheaper and you can tailor what's in it to suit your specific needs. I'm guessing yours would be mainly banana chips and nuts, possibly some other dried fruit in there for more Vit C.

    I'd rather stop somewhere and buy myself a milkshake. It won't be melted or frozen, and I can save my bottles for water. Actually, I prefer to stop at a Dairy Queen for a Reses Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard if I have the option.

    This looks like it might work for you. They have several different sizes so it should fit in your bottle cage.

    I'm not the only one:

    I only ride 10-20 miles (so far). If you put the milkshake in the freezer for a couple hours it's cold the whole time.

    I also bring water, and when the water gets warm I can pour it into my semi frozen shake to cool it off.

    For rides under 2 hours (i.e. your 10-20 mile rides) you do not need to bring anything in the way of nutrition with you on the bicycle. You're not burning enough calories to justify it. Just carry plain, ordinary water. You might also tuck a granola bar into a bag on the vague, off-chance you might need it if your ride goes longer or is particularly difficult for some reason.

    If you still want your milkshake, have it after ... and ride more.

    I cannot even drink milk during a ride or I bonk. A milkshake would not let me get 2 miles down the road. After ride I guess the milk is a good recovery drink.

    Milkshakes and bicycles may not be the most practical combination - but I thought that bicycling was largely about having fun!

    I would never drink a milkshake these days, on a ride; however it does remind me of a story from my first significant ride. In 1980 I was working at the Military Academy at West Point, and had just started riding. One weekend I rode up to Bear Mountain State park, camped out over night and rode back the next day. On the ride back, I started seeing signs for McDonalds -- at the first sign it was about 30 miles ahead. I started thinking about a chocolate milkshake -- this kept me going for the next 30 miles. I got to McDonalds around 10 AM. I went in and asked the girl behind the counter: "Can I get a chocolate milk shake?" She immediately replied "No". They were still serving breakfast. I've never really recovered from the disappointment and have never ordered a milk shake from McDondalds since then -- honest! Well maybe once or twice.

    From my experience lately, you've got about a 50/50 chance that a fast food place will serve any sort of ice cream ... these days half of them will tell you that their machines are broken.
