    +1 on the HEED. I've been using it for a month or so and really like it. Although for crits I'll stick with the pre-race Hammer Gel, only because I need the calories and have a tendency to forget to drink.

    I thought about going over and telling her about the dihydrogen monoxide that they used in the bagel processing operations and that a lot of people have died from ingesting too much of this stuff. But then I thought no, she is old and might have a heart attack

    Grape juice cocktail from frozen concentrate. It's carb central and there's other stuff like potassium and miscellaneous vitamins and minerals. Top off with a bit of epo.

    Robert Haas was among the first big hydration zealots way back in the 80s. In his book Eat To Win, he provided this recipe for fluid and sodium replacement.

    * 1 cup water
    * 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
    * 1/3 teaspoon table salt

    CHILL
    Drink two cups 15 minutes before exercise; 1-2 pints for each hour of strenuous activity.


    What I found was that this much salt made it too indigestible for marathon running. You can digest a lot more easily on wheels but I still prefer less salt. I also bumped up the juice after bonking (in the American sense) on this mix -- just not enough carbs -- and reading that carb drinks will improve even one hour cycling times.

    You also need potassium. Get some Morton Lite Salt.

    Booze.

    That or water, and sometimes HEED or Perpeteum for the real epic death marches.

    I don't want to hear about anyone's secrete recipes.

    I switch between Gatorade and eLoad depending on the day.
