#bikeschool: Happening Again

04
Oct
2011

Last’s week’s Classmate Happenings post was very well received so we thought we’d follow it up with another week of happenings from our fellow classmates at #bikeschool.  Not only is #bikeschool the coolest hour on Twitter and takes place each Thursday night at 9PM EST….it’s also a great hashtag to follow on a daily basis.  You never know what you’ll find, or what someone might say.

National Taco Day

You know how #bikeschool’ers feel about tacos…..so yesterday was definitely an important one for all of us.  Thanks to @twittyboyd for filling us in on this oh so important day and I hope you all took a moment to salute the #TacoMakingRobot and eat a few tacos.

(NOTE:  Could it be?  Was @tweetyboyd actually wrong?  Looks like National Taco Day is actually today.  Oh well, nothing wrong with celebrating this one two days in a row)

Loving the Run goes Biking

Yes it is true….our run loving sister has been seen Loving the Bike, and they wanted everyone at #bikeschool to know about it.

You Have How Many T-Shirts?

A conversation with @futuremrschaps last week was the inspiration for one of Thursday’s #bikeschool questions.  When we found out that Krissy had a total of 52 cycling t-shirts in her closet, we just had to find out if anyone else could even come close.  The question was asked and there wasn’t anyone who could touch her….have a look into her closet:

#bikeschool Spam

As far as we know, #bikeschool received its first official “hate” tweet last week.  It seems like some people don’t really dig their tweet stream getting clogged up with #bikeschool tweets on Thursday nights. Can we help it if we’re just that popular?  We do apologize to @Velocentric, and seeing as their Twitter bio states “We love bikes & believe everyone should”….we’re sure they understand our love for #bikeschool.

Tweet of the Week

One thing that’s for sure is that each week @bdix73 is going to come up with a tweet to knock you off your chair.  We’re giving Bobby the tweet of the week…which just happens to be in reply to what @Velocentric had to say:

See you all at #bikeschool on Thursday at 9PM EST.

Enjoy Your Ride

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.
