Stylish Water Bottles for Your City Ride

Chic Water Bottle Designs

Hydrating is essential when you’re on the go around town in hot weather. Drinking frequently replaces fluids lost to perspiration, boosts endurance and helps you recover after a longer ride. So, if your bike frame is equipped with a bottle cage, load it up before heading out and top off as needed. If your city ride doesn’t come with the fasteners (called bottle bosses) for a cage, or if the sporty look’s not your jam, stash a stylish water bottle in your basket or bag.  I love the examples above for their elegant designs, can-do features and versatility. They’re equally well suited to sipping on the bike, at the gym, at your desk or where ever you roam.

From left: OXO Advance 24-oz Bottle, $14.99. Constructed of BPA-free Tritan, this bottle has two handy openings; one for sipping and one lower down for adding ice or cleaning. You’ll appreciate the markings, as well, if you monitor your fluid intake or need to add measured supplements. A stainless steel cable keeps the lid from straying.  S’well 25-oz Water Bottle, $35. The minimalist styling and the fun matte finishes, like the faux teakwood shown here, make these insulated, double walled bottles a fashion statement in their own right. Kleen Kanteen 20-oz. Vacuum Insulated Classic $30.95. Double-walled insulation keeps your iced beverage cold for up to 24 hours, the wide mouth is easy to drink from and the leak-proof loop cap is impervious to spills when your bike hits a bump.
