This reader tip came in the form of a comment from Cecelia M on the article 5 Cycling Products for Riding in Hot Weather, and we thought it was worth sharing as a Quick Tip.
“I made a sleeve insert for my Camelbak bladder out of a cold bag from a grocery store. (The thin, cheap ones, not fabric) It keeps the bladder cold for hours, longer, if I partially freeze it first. Specs liquor store sells a cold bag for a bottle of wine that is about the perfect size for a 2L bladder. I live is south Texas so hot weather is my ride.”
