Drink from the Bottle, Fuel from the Pocket

Drink from the Bottle, Fuel from the Pocket
Don't Bonk!
We have all done it. At least once. We all know how horrible the feeling is when there is just nothing left in the tank. Your legs turn to jelly and making it to the end of your ride seems impossible. Your brakes seem like they are rubbing and your tires feel flat.

When you start bonking on a ride you know trouble is on the way. With years of experience under our belts we have finally settled on a simple philosophy to help prevent the bonk. Drink from your bottle and fuel from your pocket.

This motto has become part of every ride. Whether it be a long training ride, race or Sunday ride, it will help you stay fueled and hydrated. With the help of our favorites Osmo Nutrition and Skratch Labs, we are now able to ride our best and enjoy each ride to the fullest.

Osmo Nutrition

You aren't bonking, you are dehydrated!
As a pioneering nutrition scientist and exercise physiologist, Dr. Stacy Sims MSc, PhD, has made great strides in helping you stay hydrated no matter what you are doing. Stacy has spent many years in the lab and in the field testing and developing Osmo, and there is no better authority than her.

Active Hydration has been developed to maximize the rate of fluid absorption into the body. Acute Recovery helps your body to rapidly restore glycogen, speed recovery and optimize training adaption.

With Osmo being headquartered locally, and producing some of the finest products on the market, it's only natural that we would want to support them. However, we truly believe Osmo’s complete exercise drink system is by far the most advanced and effective for athletes yet developed! Grab a Tub today or try a new flavor with their Single Sticks!

spacer.gifdivider2.gifWeekly Tips:

Make riding in the rain comfortable and safe!

- Lower Tire Pressure - Slightly lower your tire pressure before your ride. Just enough for better traction on wet and slippery roads.

- Rain Gear - Having the correct riding gear can make or break a ride. Bring a lightweight rain jacket for protection against the rain and those windy descents. Rain booties are a cyclist best friend, they can be used to block the chill and keep your toes from going numb before you get home.

- Be Visible - Generally if it is raining it is going to be darker. Throw on some bright clothes, preferably equipped with reflective strips or details. Also, bring front and rear lights to help you see and to make you more visible to cars.

- Bonus - After reading all about staying hydrated it is important to remember that just because you are wet, doesn't mean you don't need to hydrate. So bring that Osmo or Skratch and keep sipping!
