i remember on my last ride i didn't drink too much water because it tasted "funky"
next ride after that i began the arduous task of cleaning the bladder. it was full of black mold. i decided to let it set this next one out.
im wondering how i should go about cleaning it. i used bleach and cleaned out the hose with a clean shoe lace jammed on to a straitened out coat hanger. its clean now but the water tastes like its from the city pool even though i washed it out for about 15 minutes.
so i did a 30 mile ride with a backpack full of water bottles. oh and it was 82 degrees Fahrenheit, that's hot for Wisconsin, im used to wearing t shirts when its 40-50 degrees.
