  • Beer
  • Chocolate Milk
  • Sports Drink
  • Hard Alcohol
  • Wine
  • Milk
  • Carbonated Beverage

If you are interested in last year’s results, they are here:

Chocolate milk for the win. 20g protein, 70g carbs and fluid replacement.
Tastes good and you can get it anywhere.



I completely agree. It is my recovery drink.


If I’m feeling disciplined, SiS REGO (Strawberry)
If the sun is over the yard arm, I like a Guiness.
Otherwise I’m kind of hooked on Fanta, since first doing Attacker years ago.

Some days…all 3… :wink:

Non-alcoholic beer, especially Guinness 0.0%! Tastes “close enough” to the real thing to be fully enjoyable as a drink and no performance guilt the next day.

As this tour goes on, I suspect this drink will evolve into Guinness + espresso or a Guinness float to keep the energy levels sufficiently topped off. :icecream:


Chocolate milk and some Nuun immediately after the ride. I generally do my riding first thing in the morning, so more adult beverages wait til later in the day. Right now, that’s Sierra Nevada’s Torpedo Extra IPA, though I might have to find myself some Guinness to properly celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!!


When I’m serious about it, I make a shake with 50% kefir, 50% vanilla soy milk, and a small scoop of vanilla whey powder. Tastes like a vanilla shake from a fast-food chain.
