As many of you know, we're running a Kickstarter campain to help launch our Nectar and Elixir- bicycle seat clamps with a built in bottle opener. As part of this, we've done some serious research into the health consequences of combining the two glorious past-times, biking and drinking beer.
Our empirical testing results have all pointed to the fact that drinking beer after a good ride is very important, nigh imperative. After performing some scientific research (googling), we have found solid evidence to back up our tests.
Speaking to the British newspaper, The Telegraph, Professor Manuel Garzon, who led the study, said, "the bubbles in beer can help quench thirst and the carbohydrates in the beverage can help make up for burned calories."
Also from the same article, "Juan Antonio Corbalan, a cardiologist who has worked with Real Madrid football players and Spain's national basketball team, told The Telegraph he has long recommended beer to professional sportsmen after exhausting activities, as the drink is optimal for rehydrating the body."
As you can see, all evidence points to yes. Really, we have an obligation to give our body exactly what it wants after exercise- beer.
