    25 deg F and a great ride

    Great ride today in Minnesota but my water bottle froze. Anyone used insulated bottles for hot drinks?

    The Polar bottles I have advertise they're for hot or cold but I've only used them for cold fluids.

    Camelback sells an insulated hydration pack. Blow the water out of the tube after drinking. I've never had mine freeze.

    Went out yesterday in just on freezing and didn't even feel the cold. Today was warmer at 40F, no wind but that has been cold all day. Had to work so no bike ride so quite pleased about that.

    Thermos flask. Thers is a small one done that fits a bottle cage- You may have to search hard for one, but the insulated bottles have never worked for me.

    On weekends I will usually ride between 40 and 60 miles on Saturday. I'm setting up for touring so I bring all kinds of weight along - including a steel 1 qt Stanley vacuum bottle full of coffee. Stays hot for about three hours at 40 degrees. Warm for another two. Sometimes I have stopped to re-fill at a 7-11.
