Damn it! I sometimes chew the caffeinated military gum when I’m on nightshift. Guess that makes me some sort of criminal? Or maybe it just makes me a big dumb dummy & the FDA will save me from myself.
Man, when I am on the bike I’ll often eat them energy gels, I like to start out with a decaf and after a few miles ease into a 1x caffeine and work my way up to a couple of the double-shots. After the 60 mile mark, I figger what does not kill me makes me stronger.
‘Course I never was all that sharp. But I ain’t been killed by caffeine yet.
Yet ;) It is actually the rednecks in F250s that I worry about a lot more than GU or PowerBars.
(Full disclosure: I am a redneck and I own an F250.)
