|I've read that some people take hot liquids with them in their Camelbacks for cold weather rides.Has anyone done this and what do you bring? I don't drink coffee but I do like hot tea.Would this work or are there any other options?|

|At least my clearance-table Camelback isn't any good at hot stuff, plus I'm not sure the bladder is safe for hot liquids (probably says somewhere, but I've never checked). I like hot drinks HOT--they're yucky when they're tepid--and they cool off fast in cold weather.
Possible solution: I have a 24-ounce stainless steel thermos, Nissan brand I think, that just fits in a water bottle holder. It keeps coffee hot for at least a couple of hours at 30 degrees.

|Tough to sip hot stuff while chugging away on the bike. Good way to burn the mouth unless it's luke warm and then what's the point.
When it's cold I duck into a quicky mart or such and buy a hot cup of coffee to go and then drink it outside so I don't get sweaty. Even out in the middle of nowhere there are quicky marts nowadays.
