    I'm not sure how well known Lucozade is, but it is basically a glucose drink.

    Ingredients from the label - carbonated water, glucose syrup (26%), citric acid, lactic acid, flavourings (including caffeine), preservatives (sodium benzoate, sodium bisulphite), antioxidant (ascorbic acid), colour (sunset yellow).

    When I put Lucozade in my water bottle I can cycle for longer than when I have water in there.

    Am I doing myself harm in the long run?

    Any suggestions on something better to put in the water bottle?

    My god, I haven't seen that brand name in .. over 20 years!!! Used to drink it back when, but I don't even remember what for now. Sorry I have nothing constructive to add to this thread. But just looking at the ingredients, it's better than water.
