Tip of the day (bottles)

Keeping your bottles clean

It's very important to keep your water bottles clean. Invest in a proper bottle cleaning brush or even a bottle steriliser. Make sure you wash your bottles out after use. If you find little black dots inside you bottle it's bacteria that has attached itself to the inside of your bottle. This is going to multiply and upset your stomach, the last thing you need when out on the bike. It's time to replace your bottles. One good tip is after you has cleaned your bottles leave some salted water inside for half an hour or so then rinse out with clean water and leave to dry. Always leave the top off your bottle when you are not using it.
