It is important to stay hydrated during the hot summer months, especially when enjoying a bike ride. Fluid intake should prevent dehydration, so drink 500 ml of water one or two hours before you ride.
Try to take in fluids every 20 minutes during the ride and drink plenty of them afterwards. Avoid carbonated drinks or juices, however.
It is also advised to pay extra attention to your bicycle in summer, as the scorching heat can damage the surface of tires or increase the air pressure within them.
Check the condition of your bicycle wheels before going on a ride, and pour water on tires to cool them down during stops.
