#bikeschool: Internal Vacancy


The wonderful world of LovingTheBike.com is busy ol’ place right now. Darryl, myself and the little band of loyal behind the scene helpers may look like graceful swans above the water… but down below, we’re kicking like all get-out!

As many of you will have seen from time to time we have ‘Guest Professors’ at the official #bikeschool Twitter class (Thursday 9pm EST), all of whom have done an incredible job in what can be a nervous and stressful hour if you’ve never done it before.  I’m sure all of our Guest Professors will attest to the fact it is an enjoyable experience, and we enjoy seeing the personal touches that the ‘Guests’ provide.

Application Process

Until now the Guest Professors that have the lead the #bikeschool class into the obscurities of cycling and every conceivable related topic have mainly been selected after being long-term members of class… and having the minerals to put their Twitterness on the line in the name of #bikeschool.  This post marks the first ‘official’ application process to become a #bikeschool Guest Professor.  There is no wage, no health benefits, but you do get around 364 days a year holiday… so it’s not all bad.

Whether you have been a ‘lurker’ at the back of the #bikeschool class for many months, attentively checking in but not participating or you are first in the queue outside the classroom and always bring an apple to class we want to her from you.  The beautiful nature of Twitter allows individuals to have their voice, but some just never get heard above the murmuring lunacy of others.  Well, we want to hear YOUR murmuring lunacy!  It’s what makes #bikeschool special.

Nobody need not apply

Leave us your application forms in the comments below, but try to keep it to this format:

What type of murmuring lunacy can you bring to #bikeschool?:

Please do not worry if you are new to #bikeschool, you are still eligible to become a Guest Professor (maybe even more so!).  We want to keep the class fresh and accessible to everyone, so get your applications in and we’ll be in touch!




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.


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.
