Bicycle Culture

Cycle: Water -- A Valley Cyclist's Gold Standard

As the Valley settles in for another summer and the triple digit temps are once again the norm, hydration re-emerges as the top health priority for area denizens. Without question, water is gold.

Just because it gets warm does not mean that we stop being active. Aside from swimming, cycling is actually one of the best warm-temp activities because the constant air flow is like standing in front of an evaporative cooler. But, that is sweat pouring out so that fluid needs to be replaced - constantly.
