Cycling is thirsty work, so make sure you hit British Cycling’s recommended three gulps every 15 minutes by keeping a handy hydration reservoir in your backpack. No need to stop and pull out a drinks bottle, you can sip steadily as you go from a drinking tube with bite valve.
The Osprey Hydraulics LT 2.5L Reservoir and Camelbak Crux 3L Reservoir are both great options. Boost your performance further by adding effervescent electrolyte tablets to your water to help replace essential minerals lost through sweating. Or for longer rides, choose tablets that deliver both electrolytes and carbohydrates to keep your energy high. Sorted.
