No, I'm not talking about the water that we are partially made up of, about 60% I think. I'm speaking of water we carry with us on our rides.
First of all how much do you carry and how often do you take a drink? I carry as much as I need in my Camel Bak depending on the distance I ride. And take a drink every 10 min. or 1 mile, depending on what comes first.
I'm trying to think of ways to shave some of the water weight off with longer intervals in between taking a drink. Maybe take a drink every 2 miles or 20 min. With longer intervasl I will not need to take as much on my rides which will save weight. Keep in mind water weighs 8 pounds per gallon.
What does everyone else do? What are you thoughts on an idea like this?
