I used to have severe cramps, but drinking some electrolyte mixes throughout the day and on long rides has made all the difference.

Check out Skratch Labs or Osmo Nutrition (no affiliation).

Rides longer than 90 minutes, I try to drink about a bottle an hour on the bike, along with a bottle pre/post, especially if it's hot out. Non-riding days, I try to drink a bottle a day to keep my electrolyte stores topped up.

Here's also a link to make your own: Make Your Own Sports Drinks - Hydration and Electrolyte Information | lovingthebike.com
