Staying Hydrated

Bikeboy at The Bike Nazi blog has a great article on Hydration. This is my first year cycle-commuting pretty much full-time and now that summer is in full force here in Boulder I am aware that I need to stay hydrated.

Bikeboy has some tips on what he does to stay hydrated on his rides up in Boise. I particularly like the suggestion:

A half-hour or so before I ride, I'll consciously tank up on water (20-32 ounces).

I have always been aware of drinking water while I am riding, but the idea of tanking up before the ride is a great one.


If you get thirsty, it's too late. You have to think about drinking before you get thirsty.

Thanks Bikeboy! I love your blog!
