Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Gatorade Endurance

I have tried several drinks while riding (well except the beer and wine kind) and seem to like the Gatorade Endurance for long days. Problem is, Its hard to find. I think they make it in powder form but I am guessing I am going to have to buy it online.
Anyone find this stuff at local stores?

I think I saw some at Costco.
Personally I use GU2O. One of the few things I can tolerate during high intensity ride. Almost everything I tried made me want to throw up. That includes HEED.

- not in powder form...

- but i got beaucoup free quarts of the stuff via my Nashbar orders last year (got a get-one-free coupon with each order, and had a buddy who gave me his coupons)...

- it's saltier than the regular gatorade, otherwise the same AFAIC...

It's easy for me to find at most supermarkets, but I've never found the powder. I would say that it does taste different, more than just saltier. It tastes like there's more gatorade mix per liter or something. I like the taste better than regular gatorade, although at the end of a long ride it starts to taste really sweet to me.

Yes, I will say I like the taste of the green stuff, seems refreshing. Some of those drinks are sick.
I have been using the Hydro Boom ras lemon, as it so far has been the most refreshing for me.

Cheap Gatorade Endurance formula:
+

Regular Gatorade and Morton Lite Salt is a very cheap way to add K+Na.

Yep, everything starts getting sweet on those long rides, thats usually when I fill one bottle with water to try and even it out. Nothing like a bag of ice at that point.

Besides 2x the sodium, it has 3x the potassium, and calcium and magnesium too.

I've bought Gatorade Endurance at Safeway. I like it in the summer when I sweat more.

I have to agree, I think thats exactly why I like it, it does not seem as sweet as any of them.

I just got a jug of powdered Powerbar Endurance. Works fast, and tastes good too.

they sell it at Target, at least at the one's by me, but i've only seen the liquid come in one size...

i usually just buy the regular Gatorade, in the 1 gallon containers, at the local Target...
