Mountain Bike Pioneer

I may not be an extreme mountain biker like some of you out there, but lately I’ve been feeling like a mountain bike pioneer….and making it happen on the Grenada off-road trails. On my tropical island of Grenada, there are not too many mountain bikers around…heck, there’s not that many cyclists in general.  There...

Wait a minute.  Did you promise yourself...

Virtually Fixed

  It’s been about three years since I last had a professional bike fit.  Although it was done virtually, it totally helped my performance and comfort on my road bike.  Best of all, my bicycle fit was what started a fantastic friendship with my (now) good friend and Cycling 360 co-host….Victor Jimenez.  If you weren’t...

Lifestyle Hacking Makes Me Happy

This post was inspired by the coolest 13-year-old I know….his name is Logan LaPlante and he’s the creator of what he calls Hackschooling. If I was still a kid going to school, I would most definitely be asking my Parents if I could follow in Logan’s footsteps and be a Hackschooler just like him.  I’m totally serious that these...

What’s Your Number 1 Motivator to Ride?

Even if you’re loving the bike, there may be days when you require some extra motivation to get out there and ride.  Maybe it’s because you’re having a busy day, not feeling 100%, or just not as psyched as you usually are.  Whatever the reason, there’s likely going to be days when you have to...

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.
