I don't add tabs to my #1 water bottle because more than enough are obtained from Crank Sport e-Gels. HOT n HUMID days some lemon slices.

My #2 water bottle has ice cubes, O'Doul's NA beer and pickle juice which is especially helpful during climbing rides. Six Gap is next month and the 11,000+ feet of climbing for the 103 miles might not be much for many riders but for this 66yo SW FL rider who does 100 milers with 50' or less of climbing, the carbs in the beer and the pickle juice sure do hit the spot. Sometimes add beet juice, Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar and a shake of cayenne pepper.
