You have a few choices:
  • Bring enough water
  • Stop somewhere and buy more or use a water fountain
  • Bring a purifier with you
I bring a UV purifier when I ride in the mountains. It takes about 45 seconds to make a bottle of the stuff safe to drink, and the water is still cold by then. The thing weighs a few ounces with batteries. Drink deeply of the streams and creeks.
