Went out for a training ride [bicycles] with a friend yesterday. Low 40's F, lt. rain and in the hurry of the moment I did not grab a water bottle.
Time passes and that parched sensation occurs so my buddy gives me his second bottle, as I'm downing it I realize he's gotten his hands on some new sport drink so I finally ask him what it was.
His reply was Pedialyte, a fluid replacement for infants and young children. It's got some dextrose, fructose, sodium, potassium. It was also bubblegum flavor, if for any reason you decide to try this please try some other flavor ... I just about knackered across the highway when that first swig hit.
