A mountain biker’s best friend

Beer. Particularly Belgian Beer. I don’t know why, but whenever I come back from a hard ride (not in the depths of winter naturally) and I am gasping for a drink, nothing quite hits the spot like a bottle of Leffe or Duval. I think it ought to be made available gratis to anyone who rides a bike!

Second in line is the course the humble, but ubiquitous, cup of tea!

    As much as I agree that Belgian beer is potentially the finest drink around, I’m not sure I agree that a beer that strong is a good idea after a long ride. 😉

    That said if you like Leffe blonde, try Tripel Karmeliet.

      I find that just one is fine. Any more and I get all squiffy in a matter of minutes then go straight to sleep. Far more dangerous IMO are the fruit beers – they taste just like Corona but have a bit more of a kick! Talk about a wolf in sheep’s clothing!

      I’ll hunt down some Tripel Karmeliet.
