I fill Coke and Pepsi machines on a college campus, and I will say, without a doubt, that Pepsi is the more popular of the two (which, obviously, says something).

However, they both suck. The mid-90s Cherry Coke (before they changed the flavor and the graphics on the can) was by far better than both of them. Not that it matters much to me anyway, since I haven't had a soda in nearly two months now.

Can't vote on this. The question specifically relates to the broadbrush "any product of their's".

Coke seems to be the revival drink for long-distance riders, despite all the science associated with insulin spikes, high GIs and bonks.

Coke is my favourite rehydration and randonnee drink (after water). Pepsi just doesn't do *it*. But I am not a fan of either of the companies' other products, ranging from carbonated through to still waters, plus the usual Gatorade/Powerade variants.

Rethink the poll hi565, or your specification in your initial post, and you may get a better picture from the responses to report back to Coke/Pepsi.

Yeah, carbonated drinks are bad for your teeth, and the sugar is rarely beneficial to your health. Water is fine. Or milk.

Water or unsweet tea. I have a Coke about once a month when I go see a movie,or if I'm running a fever, that's the only time I crave one. I work outside in Tennessee summers, so I've fallen out of the habit of soft drinks for hydration.

very skewed results so far. Since the companies obviously don't have such a skewed difference in their command of the market, what does that say? Why would cyclists prefer coke over pepski? I don't get it.

So Coke or Pepsi is too unhealthy, but beer is just fine?

When the coice is between Pepsi Cola and Coca Cola, I opt for Pepsi. The wife loves Coke. My actual regular drink though is Fresca, a product of Coca Cola. I drink tons of it.

And the phosphoric acid in both is known to lead to weakening of the bones. Being as cycling is a non load-bearing activity, this should be something to be concerned about.
