OK, your last advice was to sign up for the Eastern Sierra Double… So, I did..
Reading through the documentation they strongly suggest using a 70oz Camelback. I went out tonight and looked them over and started thinking that 70oz is the same as ~3 extra bottles.. That’s a huge amount of fluids..
I was thinking on a Sacramento 100+ degree day I can ride about 20 miles on two bottles. So I could see their point about carrying extra water.
But what caught my eye was a dual bottle holder for behind the seat. Which would be 48oz.
So, what are the pro’s and con’s of two extra water bottles or a Camelback?
