Water bottles are one of the things you should have while biking. Bottles are usually available in two sizes: 750 ml (about 25 oz) or 500 ml (about 17 oz). They also come in two basic types: insulated and uninsulated.
The Difference of Insulated and Uninsulated Water Bottles Bicycle

Wide range of bottled water cycling
You will usually use about a small bottle of water per hour on a warm day - more on hot days and a little less on cool days, so plan accordingly. Longer rides usually require a pit stop for more water. In Arizona, for example, I often use more than one big bottle per hour on hot days, so I have to stop if I want more than a few hours!
Insulated water bottle is a bicycle drinking water bottle with special coating so water can keep cool. While uninsulated water bottles are regular bottled drinking water without any special coating. The shortage of uninsulated bottles is the water does not feel fresh when you are cycling in hot weather.
SPECIAL NOTE: You may want to add electrolytes and / or carbohydrates to your water bottle. See the section on Nutrition for more information.
I recommend an insulated bottle with the usual type. They keep your water longer, and having cold water is very important to me. I do not know the science behind it, but I certainly look better if my core body remains cool. Another thing I strongly recommend is the Camel Back bottle. They have a variable flow valve at the top that lets you squeeze water into your mouth. No other operations are required. All the other bottle tops ask you to pull the top first, which opens the valve, before you can drink. Inevitably you accidentally hit the top with your teeth, shut it again, which can be very annoying when you're trying to pedal! Plus, it looks like I will not be able to get the strong flow I want with this type of bottle
