Skratch Labs Samples

You know how every week, you hear the ride leaders rambling on about how important it is to ride with something other than water in your bottles? Well great news! Our friends at Skratch Labs have sent us samples of their exercise hydration mix product in four great flavors! We have a limited number of samples, so it is first come, first serve. So, bring you water bottle filled with water and let Skratch labs turn it into something great!

More Information
Our Exercise Hydration Mix, also known as “Secret Drink Mix”, was developed and tested in the field with athletes competing in races like the Tour de France. For years, athletes would secretly dump their sponsors’ drinks to replace it with ours, earning the name SDM from the pros who used it. Those athletes will tell you that they felt better, performed better, and didn’t experience the bloating and stomach issues that they did with other sports or electrolyte drinks. The secret was that our drink just worked better. And now that the secret is out, everyone can use this exercise drink mix to optimize hydration – whether cycling, running, skiing, clubbing, or heck, whenever you’re sweating.

All natural ingredients you can actually pronounce:
cane sugar, dextrose, sodium citrate, real fruit, citric acid, magnesium citrate, calcium citrate, potassium citrate, ascorbic acid (vitamin C).

Safety

Rules of the road: When you are on the road, it is important to remember that you are considered to be a "slow moving car" by the law. So, that being said, when you are on the road, remember to follow all the same rules as you would while driving. A great example is when you come to a stop sign, Do Not ride up on the right side of a stopped car to rejoin other riders. Stop behind the car just as you would when you are in a car.
