Some cyclists think that just a little bit Start pedaling need isotonic drinks. So it is not at all. You know what drinks are best bike and how to carry with them?
Water is the basis
Water makes up about 75% of our body. Serves to transfer nutrients and waste products as well as solvents, transports heat, maintains a constant body temperature, preventing overheating of the body. Although this list of functions water is not yet complete, it is abundantly clear that the drink’s health really important.
During sports or other physical exertion, this is doubly true, then it loses many precious liquid. When fierce sports in the heat, you sweat more liters in a single hour. During several hours of race in the heat and high humidity may athlete lose up to 10 liters of fluid!
Ions? Tea? Juice?
People sometimes easily succumbs sense that when it moves, it should perhaps reflect on ionic drinks.But it is certainly not necessary. During normal movement to replace the loss of important nutrients and fluids ordinary water. Who prefer flavored drink, add the juice, sugar, or use cold tea. Experts do not recommend concentrated fruit juices is always good to be diluted with water.
If you insist onion drinks, you can try the homemade treats for athletes. Thursdays created by adding a teaspoon of salt, one tablespoon of sugar and one teaspoon of lemon juice to one liter of tea.
Are ions such as ions
Called.ion drinks are designed especially for athletes who, because of a heavy burden need to replenish fluids in addition also basic elements (sweat goes especially sodium, urine then potassium) ions, but also energy. But such weekly holidays on a bike is a body otherwise only occasionally vyjíždějícího individuals also considerable strain. In this case, the appropriate package ionťáku pack.
There are basically two types of isotonic drinks: liquid concentrates and powder drinks. Preferably the former is the price- per liter of concentrate from which to prepare 50 liters of drinks, you’ll pay less than 400 CZK. However, a similar amount spent for drink powder for making just five liters of fluid athlete. Where is the difference?
Concentrates are very dilute, containing essential ions and other substances, but lack, in particular energy. The advantage of concentrates is precisely their affordability, thanks to which it applies also benefit the common man and thus at greater load your health. Powdered ion drink is more suitable for very active athletes or contestants.
The more the better?
One question is what to drink, how to drink the second. In normal load in daily life, we should drink about 1.5 to 2.5 liters of liquid. Neither sport is not true that the more you drink, the better. Too much water because the body can not handle, they can lose stomach pain, nausea or even vomiting or diarrhea. How to do it?
The drinking regime is appropriate to begin before leaving, thus, for example, drink a glass of water 20-30 minutes before taking a seat on the bike. Should be followed by 0.5 to 0.8 liters of fluid per hour, preferably distributed into 4-5 smaller doses.
I’m not a camel, now what?
Basic room offers bike bottle in combination with a basket placed in the frame as an alternative for cycling water bottles. Frame frequently holds two baskets, but sometimes only one, the bottles are manufactured in volume from 0.5 to 0.8 l (yes, you are confronted with a quart, but its stability is in the basket when driving a very small, it can not be recommended).Small multiplication table gives the answer that we are the best equipped in this respect, 1.6 liters of fluid, ie supply to about two hours of movement. If you are traveling for an extended period, it is necessary way to supplement – if for nothing.
Bottle advantage is affordability and easy to wash, but more disadvantages. The fluid is at least isolated from the external environment (unless you own a special Thermoflask), summer is hot, in the winter cold (optimum temperature for drinking beverages, however, should be as close to body temperature). Mouthpiece cylinder is exposed to dirt, with each voltage and devour mouth least dust.
If you want to drink driving, we must let go of the handlebars with one hand and fumble somewhere in the frame, in the same way and then come back a bottle. The safety drive and decreases significantly.
A little bit better solutions
Hit the last two or three years in cycling backpacks equipped with a reservoir of fluid. This is most often located in its own compartment of the backpack. Safe Drinking is possible through tube with mouthpiece, decorated along the shoulder strap to the mouth. For drinking so just put the mouthpiece in your mouth, teeth, squeeze and suck it. Attention driving wheel is not reduced driving safety is equally high. This is one of the major, but certainly not the only advantage of the water reservoir.
The mouthpiece is positioned high above the ground and close to the body to be covered from contamination. Water bag is isolated as by placing the bag, as well as indirect contact with the body. Water is a winter and summer is still the optimal temperature.
For extremes can buy a bag insulation and insulating sleeve on the tube, which is when they leave the backpack, the weakest point of the system from the perspective of isolation.
Into the reservoir, according to the design fits 1.5 to 3.5 liters of fluid, ie sufficient quantities and for longer trips. In the manufacture of bags they are on the inner side of the often used silver ions, which is used in health care as a “killer bacteria”. Finally backpack offers extra carrying space for small things, but also for spare clothes, camera and so on.
The disadvantage of this transport system is generally increased sweating, back after a backpack and a higher purchase price. Especially in the case of some products it is even worse then wash reservoir. We therefore recommend only choose bags with sufficiently wide filling holes into which fits the hand.
Not only drinking lives cyclist
When we go on a bicycle, certainly we not last all day on the water, though enriched ions. It is also necessary to think of energy supply. Even with him is a good start as a light snack before starting off. Just for example bun with butter and ham, biscuits, fruits or any other snack about an hour before departure.
During the ride is good, then eat a mouthful about every half hour to 45 minutes. Ideal as muesli bars, biscuits, fruit and the like, as well but must serve a croissant or bread roll with butter and sliced cheese or ham.
Of course, you can use special energy bars, but unless you’re planning to travel 100 km bike is not your everyday hobby, it is useless. Normal diet and regular crackers definitely enough. If the energy bar still like to use, beware of unnecessary duplication flow of ions like. If the same drink and ion drink. Even for athletes just as energy bars washed down with clean water.
Who among us does not go on bike inter alia, to stop the forest restaurant for lunch? In this case, it is good to think that the meat longer processing food and thus its conversion into electricity. Protein processing is also very challenging organism.
