Hot Weather Riding Tips
Drink more fluids (no booze), regardless of your activity level. If you wait until you are thirsty, it's too late. Caffeine, alcohol, or large amounts of sugar-infested beverages cause you to lose more body fluid. Your body's ability to sweat and cool down depends on adequate hydration. Sport drinks can replace the sodium, chloride, and potassium you lose through sweating. The general rule to tell if you are drinking enough is to remember this saying: "Urine white, you're alright; urine yellow, kill a fellow."
