If you have a long, hot or par­tic­u­larly hard ride on the cards (es­pe­cially if you are a salty sweater), try these quick and easy tips to top up your flu­ids and elec­trolytes.

Add elec­trolytes to your wa­ter dur­ing long, hot or in­tense ses­sions (tablets or pow­dered mixes are easy ways to do this).

Make fruity smooth­ies part of your post ride re­cov­ery plan.

Sprin­kle some ex­tra salt into your cook­ing.

Choose snacks like pret­zels, veg­emite on toast or salted nuts on days when you’ve had a hard ride.
