Top Tips #9 (Bladder Control)
This is a quick, simple and very handy tip for all the bikers or hill goers that use Bladder systems on their adventures........
The standard advice from the manufacturers is to rinse and dry them after every outing. This works, but it’s a chore if you are using your bladder regularly.
A far easier method is to open your freezer, move the frozen peas and Ben and Jerry’s ice cream aside, then just plonk your bladder in. The freezing process will stop mould and bugs from developing and, when you want to use it again, just take it out a little while before and it will thaw in no time.
Just remember to empty it of liquid and leave the filling port open when it goes in the freezer so the expanding water won’t blow it apart. Otherwise, it’s perfect bladder control!
