If your ride is going to be longer than 30 minutes, you should think
about how you're going to get your fluids. New riders tend to need more
fluid, more often, and sooner than experienced conditioned riders.
While it may be tempting to grab a bottled water for your ride, this
isn't your best option. Pure water doesn't absorb well, particularly
during strenuous activity. You may find yourself getting queasy.
