Hmmm. I just started using a Sport drink mix called "Replenish". When riding on hot days(above 85) I've used this stuff. It really seems to help. I've checked a lot of sports drinks and they don't have near the recommended level of sodium. This stuff comes the closest. However, it contains aspartame. I don't like the aftertaste, but I get rid of that by just rinsing my mouth.
I do drink plenty of water on my rides, but I've found that after drinking this stuff I have plenty of energy, and I don't feel "drained". Even in the heat.
So what do you all do?
