A BLOC GET CRAFTY

Craft beer and cy­cling goes hand-in­hand (or hand to mouth) and is a trend seized upon by Dutch en­trepreneurs Daan van Well and Mar­tijn Snelder, whose á Bloc Bi­cy­cle has be­gun crop­ping up in the UK, most no­tably at Lon­don’s Look Mum No Hands and the Lon­don Bike Show in Fe­bru­ary. So what does á Bloc of­fer that tra­di­tional craft ales don’t? Well, ac­cord­ing to the own­ers it’s down to the recipe that fea­tures Alpine Min­er­als for im­proved re­hy­dra­tion and re­cov­ery. It’s also ‘en­riched with pro­teins and vi­ta­mins’. Whether that’s enough to ban­ish the ef­fects of its 4.9% al­co­hol con­tent is de­bat­able as some sci­en­tists point the fin­ger of headache blame at ac­etalde­hyde, which is pro­duced when al­co­hol’s metabolised by the body, no mat­ter how pure a drink. Still, it’s worth a glug or two.
