Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Coconut Water

So I've been having problems with leg cramps. My legs always seem to cramp up during a nice hard ride and this bugs the SH!T out of me. Take for instance at last weeks Fat Tire Classic. I was feeling really good, strong and then the ole leg cramps showed up and I had to pull over as many racers past me by.

Things I need to do. Stretch, Properly warm up, and drink fluids, maybe something with electrolytes! After some research I came upon Coconut Water.

Here are some facts (Yeah, its from the Internet So It MUST Be True!!!):
Its more nutritious than whole milk
Its Low Calorie
It contains lauric acid, which is present in breast milk
Its is a universal donor. Its identical to human blood plasma
It contains more potassium than sports/energy drinks (Very Important)

So I bought some ... It has a distinctive smell and taste. Its mild and refreshing. I recommend drinking it very cold.

On Saturday, I road to the beach. I drank some coconut water prior to and no cramping. I'm not saying it worked but I will investigate this more and report later ...
