Around 3 weeks ago, we rode over our favorite mountain and stopped for a break at a small local grocery store before we started back over the mountain. I got my usual peanut butter and crackers and some Gatorade. A couple of the guys got snacks plus a can of Red Bull.
During the mountain ride the week previous, a solo ride, I did stop and get a Coke about thirty miles from the end of the ride. The Coke, caffeine + sugar + water, seemed to help.
I'm wondering if anyone has used Red Bull during a ride and what effect it had, good, bad, or indifferent?
