Rode 40 miles yesterday for the first time this season, wondering what the recommended recover strategy is for longer rides than you're used to. I've been eating all the protein and whatnot. Should I be going for a short ride, I don't now about restoring electrolytes and hydrating AFTER a ride... So, looking for your thoughts.
Other thing I wanted to ask was what sort of exercises should I be doing off of the bike, during the day, etc. I read somewhere that You USE your core on the bike you don't necessarily BUILD it there. What are your thoughts for getting into shape for the bike while off the bike?
