Sports Bloks and Beans for Endurance Athletes

When I'm out on my longer bike rides, I always carry along a gel pack or two with me, for instant nutrition. Some of my friends don't like the taste and/or consistency of gels, so I suggest they carry a package of Clif Shot Bloks, or a similar product, with them. These products all contain electrolytes and carbohydrates, to help fuel athletes during long bike rides, intense runs and other endurance sports.

Clif Shot Bloks

I discovered the Clif Shot Bloks a couple of years ago. These large, square-shaped blocks have the consistency of a soft gummy bear. Shot Bloks are not too sweet, so I can manage to eat them even when they are really warm from being in my bike bag, during a long ride. Clif Shot Bloks are available in 8 flavors including black cherry, strawberry, lemon lime and margarita. Some of the ingredients included in Clif Shot Bloks are organic brown rice syrup, organic cane juice and green tea extract.

Sport Beans

Another of my favorite block type supplements is Jelly Belly Sport Beans. They are little pieces of energy that are shaped like jelly beans. I like all flavors of Sports Beans - berry blue, fruit punch, lemon-lime and orange. A few of my friends find them to be a bit too sweet for their taste; it is kind of like eating candy. Sport Beans are also available in cherry and watermelon, but I haven’t tried those flavors yet.

Sharkie Sports Chews

I found Sharkies on sale online just a few months ago. They are my new favorite nutritional supplement. Sharkies are organic energy sports chews that are gluten free, wheat free, dairy free and vegetarian. I bought a box of their fruit splash and berry blast flavors from one of my favorite online bike accessory vendors. Sharkies, which are shaped like a shark, remind me of gummy bears. The fruit splash package contains a mixture of cherry, blackberry, tangerine and lemon sharkies while the berry blast package contains cherry and blackberry sharkies. Sharkies are also available in citrus squeeze, watermelon scream and peach tea breeze flavors.

Purchasing Bloks, Beans & Chews

Clif Shot Blocks and Sports Beans are available at many sporting good stores, such as Sports Authority. Check your local bike shop to see which brands they carry. Online vendors, such as Bike Nashbar and Performance Bike, also offer a terrific selection of energy supplements.

I'd like to hear about what kind of energy supplements you like to use when out riding your bike.

Take care,
Lynn Smythe AKA the Bike Diva
