I used GU energy gel for the first time last weekend. I didn't stick to the instructions of using it every 45 minutes etc..
Anyways, it tasted terrible and I didn't feel any effect. I was riding for approximately 3 hours at avg of 20mph with many up/down hills. I was told people swear by this stuff but I didn't feel any benefit. Anyone think different?
Personally, I just stick to water and a granola bar every now and then. gatorade if I'm lucky
