        While water is a must for long motorcycle rides, it lacks electrolytes and carbs—things that help you stay hydrated and full of energy, but your body uses up and sweats out. The fluids in this list make great companions for H2O. Bring a bottle or two along to stay alert and win the fight against cramps and dehydration.

        This household Pepsi brand has probably had each sport team and athlete on its roster at some point. Gatorade one ups water as an isotonic drink, with its sugar and electrolyte content. It gives your body much-needed sodium, calcium, magnesium, and more, while also boosting hydration and providing extra energy. Drink up before, during, or after a ride.

        It doesn’t have the most attractive name, but don’t let that drive you away from trying Pocari Sweat. Japan’s answer to Gatorade has a mild, citrusy taste that’s refreshing when cold. The isotonic drink helps with hydration and body recovery, not to mention it has less sugar than Gatorade for those watching their carb intake.

        If you want your electrolytes but not extra bottles, take a tube of Nuun ginger lemonade tabs with you instead. Drink water as usual then dissolve one tablet into about 470ml of water. One tab has enough vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes (plus a kick of caffeine) to give you the second wind you need to finish a ride.

        Because the magbubuko with matching kariton is not a guarantee, fill up a water bottle with nature’s own Gatorade, buko juice. Okay, technically, Vita Coco is coconut water, which tends to taste blander than the real thing. Still, it gets you rehydrated plus the coconutty freshness.
