HOT WEATHER RIDING

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.  While riding inland away from the cooler bay air, I found myself running low on water in 30 c + heat.  An extra bottle in the back of your jersey is a good idea on longer hot day rides, that is what the pockets are for in the back of the bike jerseys.  I also found that putting a full water bottle or 2 in the freezer helps to cool things down or get an insulated water bottle.  If you are on an extra long ride a hydration pack may be helpful to keep the H2O flowing. If you are on a really long ride take some electrolytes along in a gel pack, or chews, or an electrolyte drink mix in your water bottle to replenish your salt loss through sweat. Some gels and blocks have extra sodium in them. Stay hydrated.
