I bicycle every day. Magnesium and potassium in powdered form have *cross fingers* cured my leg cramps. I still carry a vial of baking soda in case of a cramp, because it works so fast - but I haven't had to use it yet.
I am usually very low-carb. But I ride up intense hills, often relying on my arms to pull my body downward to pedal. I rarely ride more than five miles. The hills here are too intense for it. If I go all-out and feel good sweating and breathing, that's when I've had cramps in the past. Always had cramps, before paleo, ever since the ritalin days in my preteens. So I ride like the disabled person I am.

Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
