Quench Your Thirst for Biking
To make sure you can go the distance, it’s important to stay hydrated – especially during hot weather. Our body is made up of 80% water, which allows our system to function optimally, and when you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated. Here’s how to make sure you keep your body topped up.
Caffeinated and sugary drinks rob the body of hydration. For every cup of caffeinated or sugary beverage consumed replenish with 4 cups of water.
Add Natural Electrolytes
Many commercial electrolyte drinks are riddled with sugar, artificial colours and flavours. Opt for maple water, coconut water, or electrolyte powders that are naturally sweetened with stevia, with no artificial colours or flavours.
Eat Your Water
Summery fruits and veggies pack a delicious hydration punch. Try cucumbers, watermelon, berries, pineapple and even fresh salad greens for a watery, fibre-rich energy boost.
