With the holidays right around the corner, Winter is almost here. The days are getting shorter, temperatures are getting lower, and those sunny days spent at the beach are long gone. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), the desire to ride still remains.
As we bundle up and set out on the road, often times the last thing we think about is a cold drink, but we should. Dehydration is still a very serious threat during cold weather, though it happens in a slightly different way than what we typically think. You know how your lips will tend to become chapped during the winter? The same process can happen to skin anywhere on your body. As our bodies sweat, the cold air sucks moisture out through our skin, drying you up from the outside in, even though you may not feel as thirsty as you would when facing dehydration in the summer months.
The perfect tool to help combat this is the Conquer 2L Hydration Backpack. With its 2 liter BPA free bladder, you can conveniently transport plenty of water on any ride and stay hydrated hands free. It’s reflective piping helps you stay visible during night time, and with its lightweight mesh material, you’ll hardly even notice you’re wearing it.
We all like to add some Winter base miles to our training, so being able to carry plenty of H2O is never a bad thing. Don’t succumb to dehydration this winter, pick up the Conquer 2L Hydration Backpack and always be prepared.
