    Reminder / FYI / PSA / Barefootdude is bored?

    You want to decrease your post activity recovery time?
    Haribo Gummy bears make an excellent recovery fuel as they are made of dextrose (pure glucose). Glucose doesn’t need to be digested, therefore the body quickly absorbs it into the bloodstream.
    The result? Fast muscle glycogen replenishment and recovery.
    Fanpersons of Peter Sagan (professional cyclist) should know that he uses them.
    After activity I immediately eat about 17 of them which provides 33 grams of yummy carbs.
    At only $13 to $14 (yes on Amazon) for a 5 pound bag they are also cost effective, freeing up cash for better beer and hand warmers for winter cycling.

    Hairy Gummy Bears are good for recovery too! For the price of a drink you can get one to go home with and recover as long as you like...

    You're welcome!
