Many energy gels are beneficial for cyclists. Here are a few of our favorites: 

GU Energy Gels

come in a variety of tasty flavors, such as Salted Watermelon and S’mores. Each packet has about 22g of carbs and 60mg of sodium.

Honey Stinger Organic Gels

is one of the only organic gel options. Made with just seven ingredients, including honey, this gel has 24g of carbs and is great for people who prefer organic products. 

Huma PLUS Gels

has double the electrolytes compared to the brand’s regular version, making it a good option for heavy sweaters. Huma also uses natural ingredients, like coconut water and sea salt, to supply electrolytes.
