The free cycle shots

Hey all.

hope the weekend is going well!

Has anyone got any feedback on the free cycle shots we got with 220 this month?

I tried them this morning on a cycle and I nealy through my guts up! it wasnt the taste just the reaction with my stomach. i think I should have washed it down with water.

Any thought's? On either the freebie or the stomach reaction?

    They tasted quite a lot like haribo, so i think its all down to how used you are to massive sugar doses. I quite liked them, and im sure the caffeine would help a lot towards the end of a long ride when your concentration starts to wander, though they werent as calorie dense as i was expecting/hoping
  • I used them last week on a practive run and this weekend on my first 1/2 marathon. They seemed to keep me going but 5/10 minutes after each one I was in need of a good burp! Perhaps that says more about me thatn the product.....

    Hey All

    I quite liked the Cola shot thingys as well. I tried half a pack half an hour before a turbo session and is seemed slower if anything. I ate the other half later in the night and went straight to bed and slept for 8hrs so they didnt do much for me. they did taste quite nice though.

    I liked them and they do what they say on the tin... but wine gums/jelly babies are just as good for a 1/4 of the price - COmpare the nutrition!

    Well mine have gathered more dust than anything else on the top of the fridge, so thats a good thing, slightly less to wipe off next time we clean. I should proabably try them soon.

    I thought these were delicious and a welcome change from bars and gels! Totally agree - harobi and wine gum feel to them, and no gastro problems for this lad.

    I really enjoyed them

    It was nice to have something solid on the bike and it was a small treat every few miles

    But i am not sure if they gave me any more energy.

    It seemed like a good excuse to eat sweets .

    I had mine on the bike during a spinning/swim brick session the other day. Thought they were OK, and I didn't get cramps or soil myself (which is a good day in my book). Can't see me ever using them during a race though, more likely to take them on a long ride as a treat to myself every so often.
