I am fairly new to road biking. A skill that would be helpful for me to have is being able to keep pedaling, grab my water bottle, drink water, and put it back. I know this is a VERY basic skill, and I see those who ride with me do it very easily.
I was able to grab the water bottle but too scared to put it back while in motion. I tried to practice getting confident in pedaling with only having one arm on the handlebar. I did not last too long or started wobbling side to side.
Any tips on gaining this skill? I am hoping I don't need to get a hydration backpack for a long road ride I want to do, and I also know its better to keep going and not stopping every time you need a sip of water (the weather will be hot July 19th in Iowa, so I know I will need to take sips frequently)
