4. Drink plenty of water and fluids
Since the airflow during cycling causes the perspiration to evaporate very quickly, cyclists often do not realise dehydration early enough. In order to avoid dehydration we recommend you drink plenty of water, fruit tea or fruit juice mixed with sodium-rich mineral water already before you start the cycling tour. For the tour you ideally need to bring two bottles of water and drink regularily whilst cycling even if you do not feel thirsty.
5. Take breaks
Cycling in the heat is very taxing for your body system, hence in such conditions we recommend you best cycle at a comfortable pace and do not demand top performances from yourself. Also do not forget to have breaks in the shade at regular intervals. If you have the chance to cool down in the refreshing waters of a stream or a lake, then we highly recommend you seize any oppportunity you get.
