Gatorade concentrate for rest stops

Gatorade concentrate for rest stops

At the recent Bike Virginia Tour, all of the hydration stations had coolers filled with plain cold water and riders added Gatorade Concentrate using a pump dispenser. (See http://www.uline.com/BL_649/Gatorade-Concentrate for reference). It seemed to offer the advantage of keeping the water coolers clean and allowing the riders to customize the strength of their hydration solution. I liked the idea since I got my preferred flavor at the strength I wanted. I am curious about the reactions of other BBC riders who rode BVT. It seems to offer an interesting alternative for rest stops on our CWC event.

Did not ride Bike Virginia, but sounds like a great idea.

They did the same thing on the Erie Canal Tour this year. It was great. No waste, simpler for the staff at the rest stops (they didn't have to keep mixing up batches) and everyone got exactly what they wanted.

Thanks Larry.  That sounds like an option to consider.

We already have our supply for 2014, so it is not an option for this year.

If you could research where to purchase it, it would be a help.  Perhaps we could get one or two just to try it out.

For general information.  We ask the rest stop leaders to mix the Gatorade at the recommended strength, then those that want it full strength can have it and those that want it weaker can fill their bottles part way and add water.

Gathland and Mt Aetna have a chilled water supply so they can easily do this accurately.  The rest stops that have to add ice are a little less precise.

Mary, the website to purchase/research it was in Larry's post. Here it is.
