La vie de vélo

Adventures in cycling and life

I think I’ll be using my camelback

Lovely. After a mountain bike race this past July in Wales, 161 of the riders got sick. The BBC reports that the sheep poo which covered their water bottles was tainted with the campylobacter bacteria.

Apparently this is not an isolated occurance; Last year cow dung struck racers with a similar fate at a BC event.

So if you’re riding in wet animal dung (and who doesn’t from time to time) make sure to leave the water bottles at home and just use your camelback.
