I was wondering if there is enough suger in a pice of bubble gum to give you a little bost when you are on the way down, and if so how long would it take to get you perked up.

Does caffeine increase the ability to exercise? Or just give you a shot you will pay for later in the workout?

I see now they are adding caffeine to gels and performance food.

I'd be afraid to choke on the gob while riding. Most people breathe a little deeper and faster on the bike. Very easy to choke on normal food that is quickly chewed then gone. Let that gum play around too long, might need a thump on the back. Or worse.

I've used caffeinated and b-12 infused gums and you chew them a little while then tuck it in your lip and just cruise with it. It's hard to gauge what's enough and from experience you don't want to be to jacked up while cycling. It impairs your judgment.
