The warm days are starting to creep in down here in Bayou Country so the hot days won't be far behind. Last year we had a record breaking heat wave and were still suffering through a two year drought. Hydration was, for me, a monumental challenge. Our drought was broken last month but that only means that the humidity will be soaring again this summer. It's always something, lol.
Anyway, knowing how hard it was for me to get/ stay properly hydrated last year, this year I've upgraded some equipment. I've been using 21oz. Camelbak Podium bottles and I love them. This year I upgraded to the 25oz. bottles. I'm also going to experiment with the backpack hydration system. I know that, according to a lot of Roadies, the backpacks violate the rules of cool, but that's their problem, lol. I don't know how the backpack will work out for me but, if it does, I can definitely see some advantages. I ordered the 70oz., BTW.
Anyway, is there anything you're doing differently this year to beat the heat?
