I've got a couple of 100+ rides scheduled this year.
I was about to order some GU gel this morning... and got to thinking about the GU energy drink. I normally will have a bottle with me on 'short' 50 - 70 rides, and refill with water enroute.
Last year during a century I carried the prepackaged drink mix.
Who's got an opinion on having GU Gel and Energy drink? is it a pants and suspenders move?
