Hot day? That stresses you more and hydration is more critical. It might be a eye opener if you weigh yourself before and after a ride. The weight you loose while riding is mostly water weight via sweat. Lose too much and you'll be in bad shape for a while after the ride. Sometimes days if it's excessive.

Electrolytes play a big roll too. You have to find that balance that works for you. But electrolytes without adequate hydration will do nothing.
