You know that mega-stack of pre-ride pancakes is just a sugar crash waiting to hit you thirty minutes into the ride, so skip the heavy carbs, opt for a light breakfast, and take just the maple syrup with you to go with UnTapped's Maple Syrup Athletic Fuel. We admit that we never expected to see "maple syrup" and "athletic" in the same product title, but -- as Cannondale-Garmin's resident Renaissance man, Mr. King himself, assures us -- syrup is "virtually the same as what you're taking when you're taking an individual gel pack," noting that, "inherently, it just makes sense." This never occurred to us because we're cyclists, not nutritional scientists, but leave it to a family collective of flannel enthusiasts in New England to make the connection between two of their passions: syrup and sport.
