i thought i drank enouph water, but didn't. at the end of the ride i was totally dehidrated to the point where when i got off the bike, i amlmost fainted.... and had to sit down immediately. tried to get up 20 minutes later, and almost fell. it is weird, because during the ride i felt tired, but didn't really feel bad at all until the moment i got off the bike. After i got allot more water in me, i am better. Just have a headache. I drank 4 waterbottles full of water during the ride but it was pretty dam hot the last half, and i weigh 265 pounds so i guess that wasn't enouph. Anyways, i survived, hopefully someone will learn from this. before my next big ride, i am going to buy one of those hydration bags.
