What causes my legs cramps after touring?
Every summer for the past few years, my friend and I tour around one of the Great Lakes. We average over 100 plus mile per day and cycle daily for a couple of weeks.
While riding I drink lots of water and Gatorade.
Every year, after I stop riding our tour, I develop strong leg cramps for three to five days after our ride.
What causes this? Am I going in Gatorade withdrawel?
