Yes lol this guy thought it didn't make sense me using a hydration pack!(My bike frame only fits one water bottle carrier, and due to lack of skills I'd be slow trying to drink while riding, especially with crowds of cyclists on the road!)roshea wrote:noumenon wrote:WATER BOTTLE
Also I don't drink anywhere near as much water as most of you riders. So I took off my water bottle. Saves me about 600 grams in weight. On a cooler day like tomorrow I will drink even less water. Though it will be windy so some dehydration may occur. I can take a sip at lunch & rest stops if I really need water.
Are you serious? Please take a water bottle. If you're exercising, you are perspiring. You need to replace those fluids. A sip at rest stops, unless you are taking them every few minutes, will not be nearly enough.
Percrime, so are you telling me you didn't know you had hypothermia until you were told you had it? That is disturbing. I'm assuming symptoms of hypothermia are more than just shivering? Interesting read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypothermia#Signs_and_symptoms

So: short-sleeved jersey and knicks, pressure stocking on one leg, leg warmers, arm warmers, short-fingered gloves with glove liners underneath, short-sleeved merino top, wind vest, cap, headband, and carrying spare pair of long-fingered gloves and spray jacket.
