More time in the saddle means replenishing your energy and hydration is even more important. We highly recommend using Roctane Energy Drink in your hydration bladder, as it provides a high volume of calories, electrolytes and BCAAs which reduce muscle fatigue and improve mental clarity. You’ll also want to keep eating at a measured pace, roughly every 45 minutes, so we recommend bringing a mix of solids, liquids, and gels. Since your cravings can change when you’re in the saddle for hours, it's important to use a mix of forms and flavors to entice yourself to continue to eat and drink. Try a mix of sweet, savory and refreshing flavors as well as gels, solids and fluids. For an added boost of energy boosts before climbs or towards the end of the ride, carry Gel flavors with caffeine.
