Cool Tricks: Hydration - Dirt Rider Magazine

Fill your hydration system half full with water and freeze it, then add water to it just before a ride. It will stay cold and as the ice melts you'll have more cold water during the ride.Pack your cooler with frozen bottles of water instead of ice. Not only will they keep your stuff cool but you can drink them as they melt. If you like to cut sodas or energy drinks with water, then also pack some half-full frozen water bottles so when you are ready to drink, pour in your favorite beverage and it will be cold and watered down quickly.

Having a damp towel in your cooler can go a long way in cooling you before a moto, and it will be even more refreshing after one. The less damp the towel, the less shocking it will be.
