Well, the Sport Beans had better work, because I ordered a 24 case of extreme Cherry based on your recommendation. Due here on Monday.

Recycling can be taken way too far.

As for sport drinks, until they start making beer bottles that fit the cage, I tend to stick with Propel and water.

Water only for rides less than 2 hours.

Over two hours, I like nuun tablets in a water bottle, pretty heavily diluted, for electrolytes.

This year on longer rides (3 hours plus) I've been using Hammer Perpetuem; like noted above I find it's a really good replacement for "real food" and I finish rides not hungry, energetic, and not over-full.

I fill my bottle with fruit juice, about a quarter of the way up, then I top it up with water.

I have two bottles. One with water that has Elite added and the other has Gatoraid, (red fruit punch).
I also eat a protein bar after any 25+ mile ride, longer rides I eat one during and after the ride.
