Hot liquids for cold weather rides?(3 posts)

Hot liquids for cold weather rides?PEDDLEFOOT

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?
Not what Camelback does bestCory

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.
Just stop at the Quicky Martbimini

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.
