2018 RAGBRAI Cyclists Recover with Chocolate Milk
We often hear that cyclists love to recover with chocolate milk after a race. To support their commitment to a healthy lifestyle, we thought it’d be perfect to offer our organic chocolate milk to athletes participating in the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI). This year Kalona is a designated meeting town on Friday, July 27, 2018. Our sister company, Kalona Creamery, will have roadside stand on the route (2 miles before Kalona) stocked with protein packed, nutrient-dense essentials, like cheese curds and organic chocolate milk! Kalona SuperNatural is happy to supply high quality dairy, naturally balanced with key macronutrients including protein and carbohydrates. Open 7 a.m. – 6 p.m., the stand accepts cash and all major credit and debit cards.
Riders can find our organic chocolate milk in many locations along the route including:
- Kalona Creamery
- JW’s Foods
- Iowa City
- New Pioneer Co-Op (22 S Van Buren St. & 1101 2nd St.)
- Natural Grocer’s
- John’s Grocery
- Bread Garden Market
- Lucky’s Market
- Natural Grocer’s
- Fresh Thyme
Chocolate milk offers nutrition central to recovery after a workout. Tired muscles want insulin to jumpstart recovery process, which happens when chocolate milk enters the body. A recommended 4:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein is present in the drink. Key micronutrients such as a wide range of vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes replenish the body’s stores. Recovering with chocolate milk is a smart choice for athletes.
Continuing Support for the Biking Community
“RAGBRAI has never come through Kalona so this is really exciting for us! Building a long-term relationship with the biking community is something we are invested in. Sponsoring local rides is a great opportunity; we support the Courage Ride that comes through Kalona every year and look forward to sponsoring additional local rides in the future.”
