How much water do I need to drink while riding my bicycle?

As a rule, you should try to drink 8 ounces of fluid every 15 minutes. Since your body can only absorb about 1 liter of water per hour you need to carry at least that amount for every hour you ride. Anything over a liter will be "processed" immediately.
