I Still Do,  #Livestrong

If all you’re concerned about is Lance Armstrong being a doping, lying, cheating cyclist…then you’re focused on the wrong story. It’s not your fault, really.  Our entire society revolves around the wrong story most of the time. Think about it for a second.  War and violence will always get 1000% more exposure than stories...

My blogging buddy, Zoe from Grenada 40, suggested I put up something about how to write a post when your kids are around.  Seeing as 90% of the articles I put up were written with my kids within 3 feet of me, I figured I just might know something about this subject. Growing up,...

Oh, the Things I Say on my Bike

On a day to day basis, I’m really not a person who goes around swearing.  In fact, I rarely let the f-bombs fly.  But get me on a bike, and it’s like I’m an entirely different person. Yeah, the verbal smack down I give out would totally make your head spin.  If you haven’t...

Farrah: Every Bike Has a Story

She’s a rustic old frame on two tired out wheels, and our family knows her as Farrah. We were living in Austin, and looking for a vintage bike for my antique loving wife.  She came across a Columbia bicycle on Craigslist, and it instantly spoke to her.  The bike was located West of town,...

The Best Place to Think

You’d think my answer to this question would be “on the bicycle”, right?  That used to be part of the answer, but under my current environment and conditions….it is not. We all need time to totally clear our head so that we can remember the important things that we’ve forgotten about, and focus on...

The Conspiracy Cyclist

Have you ever watched any of the Zeitgeist conspiracy movies?  Well, if you’re like me you wouldn’t call them conspiracy.  You’d call them reality. Yeah, I’m one of those that totally hasn’t bought into what the Government (or Secret Government) is doing to us.  But I’d rather have you watch one of the Zeitgeist movies...

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
