Recoverite is for recharging your glycogen reserves. The protein increases the insulin response, which increases glycogen storage.
You only need that if you 1) depleted your glygocen on the ride, and 2) are going to ride again tomorrow.
There's 10g of protein in a serving of Recoverite. That's not enough acording to many popular theories if you are looking to bulk up.
Bulking up is not going to make you a faster cyclist, unless you are a track sprinter.
