Hey Fixer,
Here's me "giving you the bird" birdie.jpg
Actually, that's me after having a couple of margaritas in Pacific Grove on a windy afternoon (the bird isn't mine) - does that still count as a Margarita shot?
One more time (as I already posted it in here somewhere):
I am M.E.
I look like (well look at the pic)
I ride a Trek 1500 Women's Specific
I ride wherever and whenever possible, but only if I'm fed at some point after 70 miles

No, it belongs to a vendor on the wharf. I made the vendor a little nervous I think, because I smelled like tequila and squealed when I saw the bird (I wanted to pet it).

Only if Cytomax will mix well with it! Come to think of it, I sometimes feel a little tipsy drinking Cytomax. I wonder why? Sugar?

I'm going to hold you to that, Voltman! That stuff is expensive. And, yes, I've tried the sugar free too. They just came out with a Pre-Ride formula, but I use it while riding as well. Can't tell the difference...

For my long rides, I mix one scoop of orange cytomax with one scoop of chocolate protein powder. It is delicious.

That soounds kinda interesting. Maybe this is how I could use the 2 tubs of Cytomax that I have. Any ideas for Accelerade?

That sounds delicious as I love chocolate. I've also heard of people putting Ovaltine in their sports bottles, but I'd need milk (or soymilk) for that. I do think it would make a great recovery drink.

I used to love Gatorade, Cali, but I was diagnosed with asthma last year after I couldn't breath and had to quit the Tour de OC (humiliating getting into the SAG wagon, wheezing and crying like a four-year-old - which didn't help the wheezing ). Gatorade has something in it that can trigger asthma if taken in large doses (which is what I was doing on centuries, refilling my water bottles with the lime flavored Gatorade most organized rides provide at their SAG stops every 25 miles). My pulmonary specialist put a stop to that! So, now I just drink Cytomax. They don't use whatever dye that is in Gatorade so it doesn't trigger asthma.

For me, Go Grape cytomax for rides and Vanilla Endurox as recovery drink. I sometimes can't stand the Endurox.

I've tried mandarin flavored Heed once, but I find the taste too weak.
