    I sometimes dump in one of those berroca caffeine things too.

    -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..

    This is good stuff, bought it once just for the name.

    Apple juice and water, 50/50, helped me once.

    60-80g of sugar, half a teaspoon of salt and mix with low sugar cordial will be good for 1 litre

    Be fine

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

    Absolute tosh, a ginsters sausage roll is far superior

    Plenty of nutrients in man juice, just knock one out into your bidon & top up with water!

    Please don’t post that sort of thing in a thread I’m likely to read while having my morning coffee :spluttersmiley:

    I used to run long distances a lot in Oz including summer and I found plain water the best. A squirt of concentrated lemon juice makes it palatable even when its warm. I never added salt because if your levels are right and you keep your fluid intake up, then you won’t lose any significant amount.

    Separating fluids from energy means you can swallow more fluids when you need it. There’s lots of energy available from Jelly Babies.

    If you’re racing, then none of this is relevant.

    I’m still alive.

    As an aside, although it wasn’t a very scientific test I didn’t feel as good as I have on previous rides when I’ve used ‘proper’ energy drink.
