I tried bicarb supplements to boost my cycling performance – and was met with explosive results!

For a while now, I’ve been considering using sodium bicarbonate. Friends of mine who are professional cyclists are constantly being told to utilise its supposed powers – and I wouldn’t want to be missing out on a trick. 

Essentially, sodium bicarbonate (or ‘bicarb’) is meant to help mitigate the build up of lactic acid in your muscles, which in turn should allow you to push harder for longer. Though the current hype is quite new, the idea of using bicarb goes back a long way – I remember many years ago having had bicarb mixed into water before an individual pursuit on the track. But apart from having a gassy stomach afterwards, I can’t really remember how it felt nor did I have any hard data to quantify my performance.
