Respect the Chain

Respect the Chain

The chain is arguably the most important part of any bike.  Tubes and tires can easily be patched or fixed while riding.  Broken spokes still allow you to get back home.  Busted cables might make things a little difficult, but you’re still able to ride.  But break or damage a chain while on the...

Forget about dressing for success….dress for yourself.  Image and clothing is something I’ve felt very strongly about for as long as I can remember, so I’m excited to share my viewpoint on this one with you.

Strava Attack

Nothing can motivate a cyclist like a little friendly competition, and Strava definitely provides the framework to create challenges.  Although I’ve had a Strava account since they first started up, I wouldn’t consider myself a Stravaholic like several cyclists around the world.  But the other night I fell asleep thinking about a few of...

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.
