How Does Caffeine Affect Cycling Performance?
Love cycling? Love coffee? Love them both together because it’s great to throw down a double espresso then ride ride ride really fast really far, then have another espresso, and boom, boys, now we’re really flying, faster faster, more riding, what’s a hill, who cares about hills, so fast, legs fell good, another coffee would be great, yes, thanks for asking.
Phew, sorry, two espresso shots deep while writing this.
The folks at Global Cycling Network took a scientific look at exactly why caffeine is so effective at boosting cycling capacity, and why it affects some people more than others. Are there downsides to caffeine consumption? When should you have it? They answer all, even providing their fave method of brewing, the Aeropress, which we love too.
