    many years ago i didn't ride with off-road with a hydration system. on hot long rides i would often get back to the staging area on the verge of heat stroke. a quality hydration system while riding off-road is a must.

    I pack mine with some ice too so stays cold longer, makes for a nice refersher when your super tired. Once you get past the stuff that is warm in the hose :)

    Just be carefully when your putting the bite valve in your mouth not to crash! Been very close may times!

    Totally going to try that this weekend! Thanks!!

    Also working on a little better setup on hose location to see if can avoid that few seconds of single hand/slow down possible crash issue.

    yeah you don even have to blow, just bite the valve with your mouth open and your tongue out of the way and let air go into the hose

    Ha ha I learned that one last summer. I have the 100 oz hydra pack that I stuff full of ice then the rest with water. Lasts me at least half day of hard summer riding. Plus its large enough to carry some tools and a 40' piece of flat rope just in case

    i added a [loop side ] velcro "flag" around the drink tube about 2-3 inches from the bite valve. Then the opposite [ hook side] velcro stick on to my chest protector for easy grab, drink & replace the end. If that makes any sense ? It works really good for me.
