HYDRATION

Keeping hydrated is an absolute must if you want to get the most from your ride. Electrolytes like sodium, potassium and magnesium, are lost through sweat and need to be replaced.


ENERGY

Carbohydrate is the essential fuel your body needs during cycling, but your store is relatively small. Taking a gel can you give a boost when you legs start to flag.


RECOVERY

Muscles become sore and stiff when they are stressed during cycling. The depletion of muscle glycogen (muscle carb stores) can impair muscle function resulting in fatigue and reduced exercise performance. The right mix of protein and carbohydrate will help you recover after a tough sportive.


RECOMMENDED PRODUCTS

  • ZERO is a refreshing sugar free electrolyte drink with zero calories that makes it simple and easy to stay hydrated. With key electrolytes, sodium, potassium and magnesium, ZERO gives you what water can’t. Simply add the tablet to your water bottle.
  • The HIGH5 Cycle Pack is our go to for everything you need on race day.
  • For an energy boost before or during your ride, we recommend Energy Gel Caffeine Hit.  Just like Energy Gel Aqua, each sachet delivers 23g of carbohydrate energy but the Caffeine Hit also contains a high dose of caffeine (100mg). When taking part in tough sports events, caffeine contributes to an increase in endurance performance and capacity. That means you can go further than before!
  • A delicious tasting recovery shake for after your ride. Recovery Drink contains 18g of whey isolate, a top quality source of protein which contributes towards muscle growth and maintenance.
