    Couple of teaspoons of raw honey in your water … bit of redbull if you feeling adventurous.

    A packet of jelly if you cant be bothered mixing ..

    What size wheels are you using?

    Cup of hot water…. Mix in some nice honey, add a couple tea spoons of salt…. A splash of lime juice (fresh or concentrate) and top up with water…… Cheap as chips! As good as an energy drink. All they are is salt and chemicals to make them taste nice. All marketing BS (IMO)

    Can’t go to Sainsburys as I’d have to ride and I have no energy drink 😆

    But I do have honey and salt. No lime juice, will lemon do?

    Wheels size? Its on the road but I was afraid to mention that……………..

    Yeah! Lemon will be lovely 🙂 I sometimes dump in one of those berroca caffeine things too. Honestly so cheap! Those energy things are convenient but so expensive for what they are

    Who has to drink it afterwards? 😯

    Actually lemon is bad and will slow your metabolism down so best not to risk it and stick to water. Ha

    Piss is actually supposed to be quite good for you, and its served warm so you won’t need to worry about keeping it cold. 😉

    Um Coke.

    Is that one of those fancy dan cocktails? Um Bongo mixed with Coca Cola?

    Well, the Congo is in the same continent as Kenya, so….

    So if the honey/lemon thing doesn’t work my riding buddies will be able to help me out.

    Unless your riding at a pretty high level I fail to see what can’t be done with water & a cheese sarnie 😀

    I’d use MTFU juice myself.
    You’re going out for a ride not trying to win the tour.

    right… just imagine trying to avoid bonking or getting dehydrated. You’ll probably call him a girl next.

    Not sure how “energy drink” would stop dehydration any better than water.

    I’d not call him a girl but i might call him southern. 😉

    Apple juice with water 50:50 and add a bit of salt. Works fine

    Honey is a good idea, you could use it to fix your tyres as well, if needed. 🙂

    Water….I am guessing here, that it is just me ? But If I drink water on the ride I almost always bonk about a minute later.

    I almost always use water with apple or orange juice added. Lately been diluting coke at about 30 water to 1 coke.

    Run out of SIS energy, any suggestions for next best thing I’ll be able to lay my hands on at this hour for tomorrows ride?

    Water + jelly babies/kendal mint cake

    Weak squash, one sugar and pinch of salt

    As (2) but with diluted fruit juice

    all three work for me!

    2 teaspoons of salt? How many gallon are you making.

    Water, Haribo and packet of salted peanuts. No not as a drink.

    Why are people so keen to add salt? If you eat just about any food during the week out of a packet of any sort you will have already had too much salt…

    I’ve used half and half orange or apple juice and water, with a smidge of salt in. Failing that, and if you don’t trust homebrew and the ride will be ruined without – 4 bottles of lucozade sport emptied into your camelbak tomorrow morning, which you can get from any garage or newsagent you’ll pass on the way to riding in the morning.

    Yeah, ‘cos when I’m slogging it up a climb in 30 degree heat, I often wish I could reach for the refreshing properties of a bottle of warm piss… 😕

    -Who has to drink it afterwards?

    Very good : )

    A couple of years ago I started the ‘garage nutrition plan’ and found that ginsters, peanut-based chocolate items, cereal bars and the odd bottle of lucozade can fuel as long a ride as I’ll ever be capable of. And water is all I put in my backpack.

    a couple tea spoons of salt

    Really? Way too much..
