Why Cyclists Need Salt | Hydration for Athletes
with KAYSEE ARMSTRONG
After noticing tons of white, salty deposits all over my cycling kit after riding a couple of hours in the summer, I decided to do some research on hydration. I started buying the hottest brand name sports drinks on the market. For the past 4-5 years, I’ve experimented with all different types of sports drinks, but never actually read the label on the back.
Then last year, I got a fancy sweat test done. Turns out, I’m an extra-salty sweater and I sweat a lot. That means I need to constantly take in fluids that have electrolytes to prevent dehydration.
