    Provides fuel for your body, protein to help repair damage (however minimal). I would take it before hand if possible.

    I usually have 1 scoop before my bike rides and 1 scoop after. It's fuel for your body and your leg/core mucles get a damn good workout during a long bike ride, so to me it only makes sense to consume some protein.

    Scoop after running seemed to really help with muscle soreness, especially when I first started.
