Proper Hydration Is A Must!!!


We all know how important proper hydration is, for we hard-core cyclists, it’s right up there with breathing:  Do it right, do it big, or go home!

Well, because I like to look out for my fellow cyclist, I figured I’d take a look at the more important parts of getting hydration right.  I like to look at every angle when it comes to proper cycling technique and etiquette, and hydration during a ride is incredibly important.  Without water, a bonk is just around the corner.

Improper hydration is not for the faint of heart – be forwarned.

For our first example, I figured we could look at the wrong way to hydrate:

Dude, this is NOT how it’s done! Ya gotta hit your mouth

Our second example is a little better, but not by much:

At least she’s got the right idea – to hydrate, you must hit the mouth

Proper Hydration:

This is how it’s DONE!

No, No, No! She doesn’t even have the right end! FAIL!

Finally, never be afraid to help a friend hydrate.  Friends don’t let friends dehydrate:


  1. I don’t just like this post. I love it! The girls once again showing us how it’s done!

  2. If you’ve got a similar post coming up on how to wash hands, I’m following. Ah, even if you don’t I can’t risk missing stuff like this again.

  3. I have learned a lot from these ladies on the importance of good hydration. I think I’m going to have to show my wife how to hydrate properly. First I will buy her a white t-shirt as the right equipment is critical
