Good Value Water Bottle and Energy

I got this water bottle and bundle of energy powder / gels from Wiggle – High 5 Bottle bundle. Only £3.49 for

  • 750ml water bottle
  • 1 x EnergyGel Sacket
  • 1 x IsoGel Sachet
  • 1 x Isotonic Sachet
  • 1 x EnergySource Sachet
  • 1 x Zero sample packs (not pictured)

Considering most water bottles cost £3.49 it’s pretty good value to get extra energy products to test.

I just bought a big tub of High 5 Energy Source 2:1

I like the 2:1 Formula (2 parts glucose, 1 part fructose) because it is said to aid energy absorption on long rides.

The weather has been quite hot, so I’ve been taking out a couple of water bottles and an isotonic gel. I don’t need to eat much with 2 bottles of energy drink and gel, but that is good for stomach.

    What do you usually take with you on a training ride in terms of nutrition?

      on a 100Km (3 hr) today. I took 2+750ml bottles with energy powder (high 5 2:1) fairy weak.
      After 2 hrs, I take 1 or 2 energy bars (nutri grain, Powerbar)

      For a longer 4-5 hour ride, I would take quite a few more energy bars and the odd banana.
      On a 5 hour training ride in winter, I remember going through 9-10 energy bars of various sorts.

      For 2 hour rides, maybe nothing.
