  1. One alternative is to plan your route to go by a place that has water. Right?

    I will admit I have had to carry the third bottle occasionally but if it was routine, I would add a carrier behind my saddle. That bottle will not melt as fast either as it is protected from the wind.

    Also regarding the “not getting squashed” podcast. I added a taillight to my bike but never run it in blinking (annoying) mode. Just on – steady. I think that is a much better way to go.

    • Clay Thanks for the comment. That is a great point on the behind saddle cage. They do work well.

    • I was going to say the same as Clay. Find a route that takes you by a shop. Carrying another bottle is such a drag.. Or you could hide a bottle of water somewhere along your route ;o)
