Cycling with a hangover...

Anyone? Does it help end your hangover sooner?

Ouch...that sounds like a miserable time to be on a bike. It doesn't "seem" like it would end it sooner.....might make you puke quicker though.

It is better than swimming with a hangover which is better than teaching swim lessons with a hangover, coincidentally though, both are better while still drunk.

Some of my most successful rides have been hung over.

My core group of friends and i are very big advocates on getting some exercise to get over a hangover, typically in the form of b-ball...but anything that gets the heart going works. I would suspect, though, that weight lifting would have different results.

Not really. Kinda sticks with you throughout the ride. I even made the giant mistake of starting a 5 day touring trip with a nice hangover. Thankfully about 40 miles into the hilly 85 miles I got my second wind. Thank goodness!

depends on how over you are hanging in my book. a bit foggy, go ride. Pounding headache and your stomach is crawling up your throat, not so much.

From what I remember from college days

Hair of the Dog.
Call out of work.
Sleep.
The Addams Family & greasy food.
Sleep.
Bad afternoon movie.
Sleep.
Less greasy food.
Go out again.
Repeat.

There was a place in College Station called the Chicken Oil Company. They had a death burger on the menu. It came with jalapeno peppers and tobasco sauce. It would burn a hangover out of your system. Not sure I could ride a bike after eating one though.

I am careful not to get massive hangovers. Fortunately I have acquired a pretty high tolerance for alcohol and a low tolerance for lack of sleep. Translation? Even though i might drink a 6 pack I am early to bed and early to rise. If there are any hints of hangover, they are easily pedaled away.

I am a big believer in exercising hangovers away.

The few times I've ridden with a hangover, I've felt like shiat the first five to seven miles, but then could start hammering the last 15-25 miles. I've always felt much better at the end of the ride than at the beginning. Especially if I hydrate well before riding, while riding, and post-ride....

It's been so long since I've had a hangover that I've not ever biked with one. But it seems like the exercise might help as long as you're drinking enough water. Part of a hangover comes from being dehydrated, and I've been told that another portion comes from vitamin and mineral loss.

Has anyone ever been told to drink water and take a multivitamin when suffering from a hangover?

Athletes perform better when slightly dehydrated.

B-complex. Water. Aspirin. Before going to bed. More water during the night. Miracle pre-cure.

While I am rarely hung over, I frequently wake up drunk. Drinking a bunch of water and then cycling home makes me feel all better.

oh, my goodness, your question reminded me of a ride I did last year. The three of us went out for Oktoberfest the night before a ride we were going to do 2 hours away. The grand plan was to have dinner, a drink, hear the live band and call it an early night. The problem came when 2:30 rolled around and we were still having a grand time. Crawled into bed, finally, around 4 and had to get up at 0600 to make it to the ride in time to register. There was no way in Hades was I going to miss that ride because of a hang over. I'm just stubborn that way. So, I slugged through 45 miles on 2 hours of sleep, 1/2 of a Bojangles potato hashbrown and couple of sips of coke. The first 1/2 of the ride was pretty miserable, but then I was able to take advantage of the sag stops and get re-hydrated and re-fueled. Not recommended.

hair of the dog is the answer. drink a bass ale for breakfast. pour bass ale #2 into a water bottle and go for a ride 15-30 minutes later. works like a champ. i've been conducting a clinical study of this method for over ten years and can confirm that it works

I've done centuries hung over. Between the exercise and flushing your system out with fluids, it does end the misery sooner. Expect to be very tired when you get off the bike though.

Last night I had 4 vodka nips and a pint of Newcastle last night around ~ 12 am or 1 and then at some point i pass out. I was supposed to be at work this morning no later than 9:30 am, I woke up to the sound of an (really annoying) ''beep-beep'' of a nextel from my dispatch guy at 9:40 - wondering where the hell I was.. I had a terrific hangover. . but I drank some cold day old coffee, got my bag and toughed it out. . it was 'character building', yes.
