Anyway, I recently got back on the bike. I've noticed hills, and my wind are the limiting factor. Also, recovery takes much longer than when I was younger, and in much better shape. I am very relieved that even with the relatively extreme position on a road racing bike, it has not caused any lower back pain. I feel great on the bike, almost the same as years ago except for my endurance, but that is also changing as I ride myself back into shape.

Any suggestions for an additives to water to help keep electrolyte levels decent?
I use this and order off works and is not too sweet. Sorta like a Gatorade lite.
