LA has been in a 100°F+ heat wave.
Brick ride was a hot one. We met new PTC member Liz! Good Work Liz.
Started at the Rose Bowl. One loop. Up to Descanso Gardens. Down to SoPas Trader Joe’s.

I was wondering if you had any tips on hydration. California seems to have the hottest weather and I was wondering how you deal with the heat.
Hydration is huge. I’m a big sweater too.
I pre-hydrate by drinking a lot before a ride. Otherwise I start in a deficit.
Then I keep drinking throughout the ride. I use Skratch Labs power. It’s easy on my stomach. On rides that are longer than 2 hrs. I use Hammer Perpeteum and a little fruit juice to break up the chalky flavor.
Thank you for the information. I’m looking to help myself combat dehydration. Thanks!
