If you exercise you dehydrate yourself. It is recommended that you drink at least 20 oz per hour while riding. When it is hotter you may need twice that.
I live in the humid Midwest and I can feel the sweat, but this is different in arid areas.
When I started cycling again, I invested in a hydration pack designed for cyclists. I selected one that carries 100 oz and it can last me for hours. I like the convenience of the tube being close and easy to grab. I have an insulated tube cover to keep the water flowing in cold temps. I still carry 1 or 2 bottles on a ride and add a 3rd for the tour.
My current arrangement allows me to frequently take liquids. The hydration bladder holds water and the bottles for the flavored drinks.
One of the benefits doing many rides in various conditions is that it allows you to better understand your needs. You will build your confidence.
Keep drinking and if you think 'drink', then take a sip.
