Let us share with you some of our favorite brands and items that we know will keep YOU feeling strong throughout what ever cycling adventure YOU might have ahead:
Skratch Labs Boulder, CO www.skratchlabs.com
"At Skratch Labs our mission is to provide people with the inspiration, life skills, and products to take better care of themselves and their families. Like most things in life, we’re figuring it out as we go. That said, a few things are clear – that food and drink are better when made from scratch and that no matter where we find ourselves in life, that it’s never too late to start from scratch."
Daily Electrolyte Mix
"This is not a sports drink. This is an all natural electrolyte mix for those times when water isn't enough but a sports drink is too much. Our Daily Electrolyte Mix is designed to help you maintain an optimal level of hydration in that place between just sitting around and working out. You know, life. With just a hint of sweetness it's flavored with only real fruit and contains no artificial sweeteners, coloring agents or preservatives. That means it has everything you need and nothing you don't. The result is a simple and clean taste that you'll actually enjoy drinking. You Live. We Hydrate."
Exercice Hydration Mix
"This is an all natural sports drink. It replaces both the fluid and electrolytes you lose in your sweat while providing just enough calories to help fuel your working muscles. Flavored with only real fruit and containing no artificial colors or preservatives, our drink mix won't upset your stomach, leave a bad taste in your mouth, or challenge your IQ with tongue twisting chem-lab ingredients. It just works better. Maybe that's why, for years, top athletes have been secretly replacing their sponsors' products with drink mix made from Skratch. You Sweat. We Hydrate."
"We made our Fruit Drops with simple ingredients and flavored them only with real fruit to create an energy chew with a clean bite that isn’t coated in wax. The result is a subtle taste that lets you fuel your active lifestyle with a functional food.
