    Ice cream or beer?

    My parents, who courted going on bicycle tours in the late 70s, used to say there are two kinds of bicycle tourists. Ones who drink beer after a long ride and ones who eat ice cream after a long ride. Which one are you?

    personally i lean towards the beery side. I mean i love ice cream too! But i drink beer after a long ride purely for the Carbs. its like a frothy, bubbly, tasty health shake. well without the protein.

    I stop for ice cream during the ride and beer after...usually anyway.

    Ice cream any day or even better gelato! On my tours in Italy, if I rolled into a town that did not have gelato, it meant next day two gelatos (galati ) Well sometimes two or three gelatos no matter what the luck from the day before.


    But I do also like to sample the local beer where I go.

    You people have never heard of the "beer float" have you? Try a glass of Guinness with a dollop of vanilla ice cream sometime.

    As to beer floats, if you have a chance, try a good Russian Imperial Stout with an equally high grade chocolate ice cream. Excellent.

    That sounds delicious, filling, and intoxicating. Yummy!

    Yeah, I'd have to second that motion... or I think it's up to "fourthing" it at this point. Definitely ice cream during, and beer after.

    Definitely beer for the carbs. I already get way too much sugary fatty foods on the road. Also, ice cream just doesn't hit the spot like a cold beer after a hot day.

    Damn! As I was reading down through the threads, the idea of a Guinness float occurred to me.
    I had no idea it had already been done.

    I eat a lot more ice cream on tour than at home and drink a little less beer than at home.

    On a 73 day tour I probably had about:
    • Three or four beers
    • Three or four glasses of wine
    • Fifty servings of ice cream


    I guess that puts me firmly in the ice cream category.

    +3, espescially if the icecream comes with a dolope of clotted cream on top.
