Today’s ride was a little shorter than average, but made much more difficult by a strong headwind and some especially long hills. The good news is that I felt strong climbing some of the hills and loved hitting 60kph on some of the downhill sections. Putting in more time on the bike makes things better each week.
A question for all the fitness people out there (runners, cyclists, etc.) Currently I am using Hammer products in my water bottles (Heed and Perpetuum) However, these are difficult to find. Is there any, easily available in Ontario, product you use. I definitely need electrolytes, and I need something with some easily digestible calories to keep me going.
I can more easily shop at Shopper’s Drug Mart, Popeyes, GNC, Superstore and even Walmart than some cycle shops which seem out of the way and often closed when I have time to go.
Would really love some recommendations. If you know some cyclists, please forward them my question because I want as much advice as I can get. Thank you.
