I’m guilty of not drinking enough. I often do my daily 30 mile ride with only one bottle and hardly touch that. On a long ride, I like two. I’ll put water in one and fill the other with Gatorade or the like. If you are underhydrated you will feel the bonk just like being undernoourished. I have never need to resort to salt-tablets, but cramping is another signal you are not replenishing fluids–fluids with electrolytes. –Corrie
Summer temperatures are here in Texas now. Austin got its first 100-degree day (38C) this week, although thankfully, we’re way behind last year’s ridiculous 90 days of 100 degrees or more.
