Bottle and bottle cage.

Bottle and bottle cage.

bidon en bidonhouderA water bottle, which can be attached with a bottle holder on a sports cycle ,can also be called a biddon, so that it can be drunk during cycling something (usually water).

A bottle cage is device used to affix a water bottle to a bicycle. Composed of plastic, aluminum, stainless steel, titanium or carbon fiber, it is attached to the main frame of a bicycle, the handlebars, behind the saddle, or, in uncommon cases, the fork. Most modern bicycles have threaded holes in the frame to hold the bottle cage, often called braze-ons even though they may be welded, glued, riveted, or moulded into the frame material.

The most common location for a frame-mounted bottle cage is on the top side of the downtube. The most common location for a second frame-mounted bottle cage is on the front side of the seat tube. Small bikes and mountain bikes with rear suspension often do not have enough room for two bottle cages inside the main frame triangle. Some mountain bikes have highly sloped top tubes that limit the size of bottles mounted inside the triangle.

Some touring bicycles have a third frame mounting location: under the downtube.

Bottle cages may be mounted behind the seat with a bracket that attaches to the seatpost.

Some uncommon forks include bottle cage mounts.

Tandem bicycles may have as many as six bottle cages.

Recumbent bicycles may have bottle cages mounted to the steering mechanism or behind the seat back.

In cycling there are so-called water carriers, who can get water bottles at the team leader for the whole team.
Empty bottles are thrown during the match often in the side of the road, and the public collects them, because there is an imprint of the cycling team on the bottle.

In the 1980s, the standard bottle had a capacity of 500cc (half a liter).
Later there came larger bottles, which typically could include at least 750cc of beverage.
