Anyone have a Big O' Beer mid ride?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

At 61 years you should know that what is important is what others in the 41 like for you.

I agree. IPA = Yuck.

I don't understand their popularity. Way too hoppy. Like drinking a field of flowers.

The hops are natural muscle relaxant, so makes my back feel better.

Besides IPA = favorite.

I once had chili, tequelia and beer at the half way of a decent "all-day" ride. wasn't the best choice but I survived. would NOT do it again.

Some of the brew pubs in my city had a highly publicized "Tour de Brew" in March, which attracted several hundred cyclists and raised money for a good cause. Me and several friends were among the participants, and we enjoyed it so much that we rode a "reprise tour" a couple of weekends ago. Depending on where folks joined the ride, the distance ranged from about 20 to more than 50 miles. I ended up with 55.5 miles, fueled by some pizza and 3 pints of ale along the way. Most of the route was on local greenways and lightly trafficked streets. We had no mishaps on either ride, other than a slice of pizza that fell on the ground (and was eaten anyway).

Look at it this way: If I don't like IPAs then there's more for those of you who do...

Only problem is so many bars around my neck of the woods carry macro "beers" and IPAs and no good beers.

I'd think that would be awkward. I filled a water bottle with "frizzante" once because the "naturale" was all gone. EVERY TIME I went to take a swig I got a little explosion in my mouth - just kept forgetting/did not learn.

Never before, sometimes during and almost always after!

What's the point in burning all those calories if you aren't going to reuse some of them after!

Micheladas are awesome on a hot day, though one probably wouldn't be on my radar during a ride.
