The goal of drinking during cycling is to prevent dehydration.
In recent years it was recommended that athletes drink to thirst to avoid illness related to the fluid overload that could occur with ad libitum drinking.
However, a recent study by Lawrence E. Armstrong indicated that drinking to thirst and drinking ad libitum resulted in similar physiologic and perceptual outcomes.
This suggests that specific instructions were unnecessary.
Indeed, if cyclists drink ad libitum, they can focus on the pleasures of their ride rather than being distracted by ongoing evaluation of thirst sensations.
