I can feel an increase in 'get up and go' after swigging back a can of full sugar Coke.mr Mag00 said:its not a fuel injection . ime it is not someting which you can feel. expensive way of getting up a hill. develop strength and use gels for long rides where you may not wish to stop for a lunch break
I've fairly often used a can of coke - warm is best as the CO2 gas is lost quicker but it's rather unpalatable - at the end of a long hard ride to get me back the last 30km or so. I reckon the combo of sugar and caffeine gives a more sustained energy peak than a gel (10-15mins for a small gel v. 1 hour per 330ml can). The problem is the time to drink the stuff (which I don't like) with all that fizz... not a pleasant experiencejimboalee said:I can feel an increase in 'get up and go' after swigging back a can of full sugar Coke.
