    I am going to complain about a great free bike forum

    This summer to remember coke add is killing me. Sometimes it starts coming on and I can click close until my mouse dies and it will not close and will open for several times as I go from page to page.

    To keep this bike related do you drink coke while riding. I saw where some liked the cokes from Mexico because the use sugar instead of corn syrup.

    Drinking a cola after 40-60 miles will give you energy that you can feel for rest of the ride.

    I'm not getting that one. A week or so ago it was a Nemours ad that was driving me nuts. Generally I don't mind the ads. Sometimes, they're a bit out of control.

    I'll have to give soda for energy a try when I'm doing longer rides. But before longer rides comes a better bike ... before a better bike comes the money ... which is arduous and I'm impatient! lol

    Get the cola from a can...fountain drinks are not very consistent with the sugar or caffeine.

    Maybe they still use real cocaine.

    The ones that I hate are the low T ads. They tease you with a photo that I'd like to see more of but, when you click on it, the photo goes away. Isn't that false advertising?

    Coke makes a good recovery drink because of its high sugar content, almost as good as chocolate milk. And I always go for the ice-cold cokes during hot centuries and doubles. Goes down way easier than the awful sports drinks you've been sucking out of the bottle all day. Lots of sugar and a bit of caffeine to keep you going...

    When I rode Paris-Brest-Paris last year, the last controle was at Dreux. I bought a can of Coke and a beer and mixed them together in my water bottle. Sucked on that mixture all the way to the line in Paris (well, Guyancourt anyway). The perfect drink after 1,000 km.

    My first cycling coach back in the 70's, an ex-professional 6-day racer, told us that the Dutch amateurs would mix up Coke and Heineken in a small flask and down it for the final 10 km of a race leading up to the sprint. I never tried that, though. And it's not doping. When you're at the dope control, they usually have a cooler full of drinks to aid you in providing a sample. There's always Cokes and beer in there!

    The car insurance ads I get are awful. I can't wait until the political ads click in. I may just get the paid membership to dodge that stuff.

    WUT?!?

    I've never heard of that - I'd have though that beer would be the WORST thing you could drink during or after a ride?

    I'm planning to do PBP in 2015, so I need details!

    What is this ad thing of which you speak? Bikeforums has ads..? I've never seen one ... courtesy of Adblock.

    Unless I'm going over 70 miles, I rarely need an energy drink. Just water, thanks. After that, I'll go with whatever the convenience store has.

    I use Adblock, but not on this forum. I like seeing most of the ads. I prefer getting advertsing that focuses on things I might be interested in, rather than getting the general schlock that come from other places. There are times, however, when the ads here get to be problems. The Nemours ad a few weeks ago drove me nuts.

    Ads, what ads?

    Oh, wait a minute, there they are. There must be an ad filter between my eyes and brain.

    It seems these ads are responsible for reducing the size of my pictures. In preview my photos look the size I want them to be but when they appear on the forum everything conforms to the reduced width because of the adjacent ad. Seems hardly worth going to the trouble of uploading photos when they are going to appear as big as business cards.

It notices a rise where your untrained eye would not observe that one existed; it notices any decline which water will run down." -Mark Twain, "Taming the Bicycle"
