I am doing my first Half Ironman in Austin, TX on Sunday and I am wondering how many bottles I should keep on my bike. I know it is different for everyone, but I'm curious to hear what people think is the optimum amount. I don't want to weigh myself down with too many bottles, but I also don't wanna get dehydrated. I have an aero drink, and aero water bottle on my downtube, and maybe 1 or 2 regular bottles on my hydro tail. I was thinking of just having the aero drink and my aero water bottle and forgetting the hydrotail OR i could keep the hydrotail so I have somewhere to put the regular size bottles during the bottle drop. Sorry if I'm being confusing!
Thanks in advance for the comments!
