- What's your favourite drink for a hydration pack
Tried using Lucozade Sport for a while, as it was on special offer, but found it too sweet when taking lots of sips from a CB over long periods. And it felt like my teeth were rotting off by the end of the ride! Then tried some powdered electrolyte stuff (forget the brand, could have been SIS). Tasted ok but was a bit sickly, even when using a low concentration.
Now I just use water!Posted 5 years agohilton83Member
Ive been fond of sis’s mixed berry superhydro for a while but they have changed it and I’m not so keen now, I tried some nuun the last few rides (strawberry lemonade) but found it a bit blah.
Whats everybody’s favourite? Of to buy some more of something after work but not sure what to go for.Posted 5 years ago

Dont put sparkling spring water in there like my mate did once. Bloody hilarious!!
Now that I would have loved to have seen…. very funny !
Water, or water with some Ginger & Lemon Grass cordial for me(the posh stuff in the tall green bottles) Nuun citrus fruit for big hot rides because it does help with cramp avoidance.
Just tried Torq Lemon & Lime for an energy boost because I’ve been taking some pain killers/anti inflammatories that have fecked me up and I have to say that it was quite nice.Posted 5 years agohonourablegeorgeMember

According to the website it says:
*Relative to conventional sports drinks
Smells like marketing BS to me
I’m sure it’s completely true – if you drink a drink with no sugar in it, you’ll surely burn more fat than someone drinking a sugary drink.
Doubt it burns fat any different than water, though.Posted 5 years ago
