Can see why you need anything more than water unless riding for several hours in hot weather.
And they'll rot your teeth.

Since when did magnesium and potassium rot your teeth?

PlanetX have some good deals on these at the moment too (although they've just finished their free shipping offer) -

Ok Gummy.oO

Probably the worst tasting ones/brand on the market when it comes to these (and yes I cycle regular and use such products)

A personal opinion of course. In my personal opinion they are very tasty.

I use these...but what's your recommendation?

add a little of your own flavourings if you dislike them that much, if they do the job it doesn't matter how they taste imo

I think you stated why you'd need these, riding/running for several hours in hot weather!

They're also sugar free, so your teeth will be fine.

Personally I use these for ultra marathons and they do help, even if the taste isn't always the best

Using these on a commute to work? Unless it takes 2 hours and you're riding hard I don't see the point. Get your nutrients from healthy sources. Use supplements where they are intended to be used - long, hard efforts.

It gives flavour to the water, also I've found if I drink these on a 30-35k off-road ride with 600-700m climbs, I don't cramp up the next day etc, and for 15 pence a tablet, I'm happy to pay it..

Might try them for the 800m walk to the bus stop from our Lidl which is next to the pub.

I'm doing a 100 mile non-stop run in 9 days - one of us is stupid and it isn't you lol

Salts of magnesium, potassium, sodium and organic acids for stability will probably work out as a mildly acidic tooth rotter. Try not to double them up/keep it dilute or use a straw and you should be OK.

Used a race pack for the London marathon, might not be to everyones tastes but after 20 miles you don't really care, these are cheap and do the job

Personally I prefer the 'PowerBar 5 Electrolytes' brand at £1.99 for 10 or CNP's brand. I buy them from wiggle.co.uk/cyc…o=2 and even Wiggles's own brand at £2.50 for 20 in my opinion taste better and are cheaper.

No sugar. No calories. Thanks for the input

super hot on the zero tabs just paid a bit more from wiggle but there normally 6.99 a tube! the race packs are really good value although they are cheaper from wiggle if you get free delivery at 6.99. Still I think 8 quid for the race packs are still great value for either a long ride or a sportive. the bottles are like 4 quid on there own.

Good luck with that! sugar free and no caffeine isn't renowned for keeping people alert!

these are good for adding a bit of flavour if you need to refill during a ride as well, much easier to carry than squash!!

Just got some of the stuff from Lidl, Leckwith, Cardiff. Still plenty of the Zero tubes and energy stuff left (protein bars/tablets etc).

The running shorts are also an okay price for just an extra spare pair. They don't have side pockets: just 1 zipped back pocket - that only just, perfectly fits an iPhone 5 in.
