My typical ride is 25-35 miles 3-4 times a week. I do them all out cause 2 hours is about all the free time I have. So, I don't use anything other than HEED & whatever gel I can get my hands on. I find myself feeling strong at the end of rides. I'm rarely feeling depleted unless I was to begin with..I always follow up with Recoverite. Seems to work fine for me,
I know I need some protein among other things for longer rides. When I ride over 35 miles or 2 hours, I typically bring a bar of some kind with me.
So..is it marketing hype as far as Perpetum goes? Or is it worth it for anything over 2hrs as they say?
When you do use Perpetum, is it best to start with HEED for the first 2 hours and then switch to Perpetum or is the point of Perpetum that you need to replenish the protein and other lost junk from the get go so when you cross the 2 hour threshold you're not trying to replenish what's been lost and making up lost ground?
