    Don't worry, Emily... he got over it! He's like me, essentially does not worry about this kind of stuff.
    Oak, that drinking fountain sounds like an awesome idea. I can think of a few places around here where they should be put in for cyclists.

    There's a water fountain at my gym that also has a sensor at the back for bottles. You hold the bottle upright in front of the sensor and the water comes out a tap directly above it. But there is also a regular water-fountain spigot in the front.

    On Saturday I did a ride in the rain. I thought about this thread every time I took a drink from my water bottle. Yesterday and today my stomach has felt kinda queasy. Nothing serious, just enough to make me think about drinking from that water bottle in the rain. I'd do it again, though. I think.

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver Trek 2000 road bike
    - Two awesome and worn out Juliana saddles

    It's not as dirty as we think.
    But, I don't drink directly from the fountain,
    I just use my bottle, fill it and drink from it.

    Hey, zaki, that's pretty interesting. My mom used to tell me the same thing about running water through the house faucets before you drink it.
    "My predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved;I have been given much and I have given something in return...Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and an adventure."

    I usually don't but well when need calls you ignore the risks. I drink from public drinking fountains but only rarely.

    When it's raining, try to squeeze the bottle a little bit prior to drinking, and rub it on your jersey (between your body and forearm). It's a pain, but better than drinking some unidentified muck. Now, I don't always follow my own advice...
