in my case both / or ether one will lock up so bad I have to crawl to the shower I have already passed out from the pain . Pickle juice does work better than anything else I have used except a hot shower .

Copy that. Just wondered if the extra strain using the rear brake played a factor. I hear you on the Pjuice. My racing partner swears by it. Hes found a sport drink actually named pickle juice hes been using with success.

Yea. Supposedly the body absorbs the coconut water molecules more efficiently.

The swill (coconut water) you buy at the store tastes nothing like the real thing.

This year I want NO MORE CRAMPS.
Last year, I cramped up so bad at times I could barely drive my truck home. Thats with drinking a litre of Gatorade before the ride, 2 litres of water during, and slamming a Gatorade immediately after.
Today I put on my 1st hard ride of the year. I mixed up 2 litres with one squished fresh lemon, a tablespoon of sugar, and about a teaspoon of salt. Drained it in a 2.5 hour ride, and no cramps. See if this works for the rest of the season.....

Pickle juice/big fat dill pickle, cucumber & coconut water has served me well for years.
Coconut water is natures "sports drink" with more good stuff than a banana or gator juice without the sweeteners that upset the stomach.
Cucumbers are natures "sports food"
