Recovery

Recovering from a long season?  Or maybe just a hard ride or race?

Tried all of these?:

Hot cold treatment e.g. sauna/plungepool

Stretching

Massage or self-massage

Compression tights (kinky)

No alcohol / caffeine (thought we’d try to sneak that one in)

Sleep

Plenty of water and fresh natural foods

Elevation (no not levitation) go on put your feet up!

Ride gently

Protein/carbohydrate drink immediately after ride/race like this one:

Wiggle Online Cycle Shop
