Biking And Fasting: Can It Be Done?bicycle fasting bike

I've started doing my workouts about 20-30 minutes before it's time to open my fast. That way I can either open my fast as soon as I'm done working out, or open it with a drink of water 5-10 minutes before being done, finish, take a quick shower, and say magrib, then eat iftar, then say Isha at Isha time.
It's entirely possible in my opinion to continue working out, and I think it's much more admirable and better to be working out in Ramadan. A lot of non-Muslims criticize us for becoming "useless" during Ramadan, making excuses about how tired we are, and what we can/can't do. But we need to remain fully functional members of society.

I also excercise right before breaking my fast for 20-30 minutes, and have had no ill effects. Since I can drink almost immediately after, it works out fine.
Of course, you have to know yourself, your level of fitness, and the weather conditions where you will be biking, but in general, I think it can be done.
