Now Playing: Cool Drink Ideas to Go
Polar Bottle, ready for take-off! Hot new designs are anything but boring on this 24 oz Red Rose Thermal Water Bottle. BPA & Phthalate-free yet keeps your water cold for up to twice as long as a standard bottle! Made in the USA
Cold not only tastes better but studies have shown that drinking icy liquids during your workout keeps you going...longer. As we discussed in our previous article, drinking sun heated water can even induce nausea. That is something no one needs on the road.
When I did the Woods Hollow Mountain Bike Classic a few years ago, I wish that I had a water bottle like this on board. Typical water bottles get hot quickly and do nothing to refresh or cool you off. During a race like that, (I competed at the Advanced Level), it is quite common to secrete growth hormone which makes you feel quite queasy. The last thing you want to do is drink a mouthful of HOT water! Ugh.
Polar Bottle is located in Boulder, Colorado and is dedicated to making the best American water bottles on the planet. They know their stuff. This company started out with the goal to create a stay cold water bottle for bicycles. Now people are seeing the wisdom of ditching the disposable plastic water bottles which are not only costly but pollute the environment.
Right away our favorites are the big gulp 24 oz Red Rose & Rave Designs in the thermals. These also come in 20 oz versions both of which fit easily in most standard bike bottle cages. In the Half Twist Stainless Steel bottles we adore the Wood Grain & the Silver with blue logo bottles. These do not leak and while the stainless steel line is non-thermal, they are perfect for tossing in the car when you head out for errands. In fact I always keep a stainless steel bottle of water in the vehicle but the Half Twist allows me to sip like a lady with having the contents splash me in the face. Stainless steel also allows you to be more creative with your hydration. Add some iced green tea or perhaps a protein shake with Rainbow Light's Chocolate Protien Energizer and some Organic Kelp Powder or Blue Green Algae from Klamath Valley Botanicals for a little extra zing. You can do it all with stainless steel! Another designer green drink I have been able to take along is All Day Energy Greens by IVL. I simply mix it with the protein powder, a bit of So Delicious Coconut Milk, ice, twist and go. Delish!
