    I keep powdered Powerade in my office (it's a lot cheaper than Gatorade). I use it for the trip home. At the end of the day, I'm usually a little hungry, so the Powerade prevents a sugar low. I avoid energy bars because they tend to ruin my dinner.

    On long recreational rides, I start with one bottle of water, one of Powerade. When the water runs out, I start the Powerade. I always carry at least one energy bar in case I seriously bonk. As far as emergency equipement goes, an energy bar is as important as a spare tube.

    FYI, powdered gatorade has partially hydrogenated oils in it. Clogs the arteries. I couldn't believe it when I read it on the label.

    Water
    Cytomax

    You gotta find what works for you.
    Gatorade goes right through me.
    The others taste like a chemical plant.

    I mix my own drink before the ride.
    Two parts H one part O.
    It's very refreshing when chilled.

    Yes. Immediately quenches any thirst. Removes it completely.
