If you’re cycling for longer than an 90 minutes at a time, then consider using an energy drink. Any of you who’ve ‘hit the wall’ on a long ride will know what it feels like to run out of gas – it’s not fun and is detrimental to your training.
Energy drinks or other energy products are designed to help you ride further and faster by keeping your glucose levels topped up. We tested 16 drinks to see which ones give you the strength of an Olympian and which do nothing more than taste like old dishwater.
