Great stuff to mix into a water bottle to drink when you're out on 2hr+ bike ride and I don't think it's usually this cheap! Just make sure you choose tropical or orange to get the £14.99 price

"Great stuff to mix into a water bottle to drink when you're out on 2hr+ …"Great stuff to mix into a water bottle to drink when you're out on 2hr+ bike ride"I don't know where to begin.... Maltodextrin, well that's great for explosive energy, but food in the stomach hampers endurance. Processed fructose, no, just no. I don't want to turn my liver in to pâté. Best thing for a 2hr+ bike ride is your body fat stored from previous meals (an elite cyclist will maintain body fat close to 10% in race season, twice as high as most elite athletes), water (OK, the electrolytes in this stuff may help, but it's not that hard to pre-load on salts via your diet), and if motivation is lacking, or you want to push yourself, some good old fashion caffeine Sorry OP.



Your last 3 posts have been deals about...sweets, chocolate and other sugar filled stuff. And then you take the high horse about health and what is good for you?

Burning your own body fat is difficult for your body to do and is definitely not something it wants to be doing - hence why we get hunger pangs.

"In making the day’s five-man move, the Sport Vlaanderen-Baloise rider swept up both intermediate sprints, three gels, two bars, and “a few bits of peperkoek”.

So that's a professional cyclist who competes at a high level and for breakfast he has a huge caloric intake and 9 bottles of water during race days. I'll take his opinion over someone who states "Food hampers endurance" when talking about a drink...

But if you don't aspire or pretend to be an elite cyclist its a great drink at a great price for 20 mile weekend cyclists . Pretty sure I'll die of something else before this bangs the nails in my coffin

Any bike ride over 90 minutes will leave a person with depleted carbohydrate stores so you need to replace them. Liquid based carbs like these are ideal because they don't take as long to digest

Sherlock Holmes in da house
I, in my imaginary cycling adventures, choose to follow the example of the great Sir Bradley Wiggins and eat ... jam sandwiches.

Trying to unwrap the cling-flim while hurtling along the windy country roads can be tricky so, heat added for this much more convenient alternative.

Our bodies evolved to burn fat, it's its preferred choice of energy, and hunger pangs don't exist, that sensation you feel in your stomach is just thirst. I also said "Food in the stomach hampers endurance", not food hampers endurance, I see you had to misquote me for your weak rebuttal

"intermediate sprints" yeah, we all do a load of those on a 2+ hour bike ride.

"Your last 3 posts have been deals about...sweets, chocolate and other sugar filled stuff." 2 of those 3 are a protein bar, to which I'd informed this site conscientious users of it's sugar content, and a god damn flapjack with honey. And I'm the one on a high horse

I don't think you understand how lypolisis and gluconeogenesis works
I'm not going to wade into the healthy v unhealthy debate but when you break this stuff down into its competent parts, for the real bargain hunter buy maltodextrin from my protein when it's on offer and mix it yourself. I got 5kg for £4.12 in March. If you believe the science that two types of sugar increases uptake then by fructose/ dextrose or whatever to complement. It's the same with recovery powders. The key ingredients are Sugar + protein. Anything else is normally to inhibit bacteria growth ie citric acid by charging pH level and then flavourings.

Our bodies burn more carbohydrates than fat in modern times. That's why if you try to fast you will get severe headaches and migraines and other symptoms - your body is not use to burning its own fat and needs time to adapt. Telling people to simply "Go from 4 meals a day to 0, because your body likes its own fat" will make people feel awful and is why most people refuse to fast after trying it once.

Very true, but it''s far better to do a refuel after than during. maybe give it a go.

That's some risky advice considering 'hitting the wall' or 'the bonk' is a horrible experience

That's the main reason most people are unhealthy in modern times, I wish folk like you could think before you spoke. I intermittent fast every day, never had any headaches. Your lack of knowledge a common sense is becoming tedious, so I will bid you farewell.

Edit: I've just realised you don't know what fasting is, and yet your making comments on it...

CardboardCutout "That's some risky advice considering 'hitting the wall' or 'the bonk' is a horrible experience"

I'm thinking maybe you didn't read the articular as it puts "via fat metabolism" before "via breakdown of glycogen into glucose, followed by glycolysis" But either way my point is you don't have to rely on glycogen stores.

This is how Chris Froome manages his diet.

Out of interest, what average speeds are you getting on 2-3h bike rides only using fat metabolism?
