#bikeschool: You Pick the Winner


In last Thursday’s #bikeschool, we had a special question sponsored by our friends from Hydrapak. Anyone who answered Question #4 from the night was entered to win one of Hyrdapak’s brand new 2012 Wolly Mammoth water bottles.  These bottle aren’t even available for purchase yet and these bad boys are different from other insulated water bottles in that they have primaloft insulation – the top tier stuff that keeps you warm in things like sleeping bags, synthetic down jackets, and things like that.  It’s inside the walls of the bottle and is sure to keep your liquid cold.

You Pick the Winner

Here is the question that was asked, and below that we have 20 of the responses from last week.  Yeah, there are a lot of them….but read through them all and help us pick the winner.  Leave a comment for us with the Twitter name of who provided your favorite answer.  If you provided one of these responses, be sure to get all your friends to come over and vote for you.  We’ll announce the winner later today.

Congratulations to @RandyRoubaix who wins a Wooly Mammoth water bottle from Hydrapak.  His reply to last week’s #bikeschool question received the most votes.

    First of all, I wanted to say that it’s nice to have the chance to help decide the winner.  It is nice to see you guys adding more excitement to #bikeschool.  I heard you talking about it a few weeks ago and it is good to see you coming through on this.  I can’t wait to see what else will happen.

    I would like to vote for the Pickel Juice answer.  Yuch.

  • Tom Royster

    Randy Roubaix – Unicorn Tears…is that some kind of fancy tequilla?

    I thought the Pickel Juice and KimChi answers were very interesting and the discussion that unfolded from the Kimchi answer was hysterical.  What a great class you guys had last week.

    • http://lovingthebike.com Darryl is Loving the Bike

      Yeah, all those Kimchi tweets had me totally laughing as well.  Now we have #Tacos, #Thongs, #Kimchi, and so many more #bikeshool buzz words going on.

  • Pamela

    I like all the responses, but I’ll officially vote for @RandyRoubaix.

    I’m voting for Unicorn Tear.  What exactly does that look like in a bottle?

    • http://lovingthebike.com Darryl is Loving the Bike

      Good question….maybe @RandyRoubaix:twitter can answer that one for us.

    HAHA toss up between @Bdix73 and @RandyRoubaix Unicorn Tears or Kim Chee juice…I think I have to toss this to Kim Chee Juice due to the fact that my stomach is still turning at the thought…

  • Bongo

    I like the Dos Equis answer

  • http://twitter.com/StevieDexter Stevie Dexter

    My vote goes to @WPopplll. icky!

  • http://twitter.com/TheMountainSun Kristi

    I’m going with Bloody Mary. I just can’t imagine that a Blood Mary in a plastic bottle without the lovely, necessary condiments of a pickle, olives etc.. would be very tasty!

  • http://twitter.com/BobRidesABike Bob A

    Best answer (true or not) is @bdix73 for either of his (Dos Equis or kim chee juice).  Best factual answer is @wpoppIII for pickle juice.

  • dboyd22

    I love @bdix73 answer and I love tacos with Dos Equis.

  • http://about.me/polleydan Dan Polley

    I laughed out loud to @bdix73′s Dos Equis response.

    • http://lovingthebike.com Darryl is Loving the Bike

      I totally agree, Dan.  That Bobby always has me rolling on the floor.

  • Marty

    Have to go with the KimChee Juice from @bdix73  - It stirred up a fun condo that school night.

    • http://lovingthebike.com Darryl is Loving the Bike

      Yeah, last week’s KimChi conversation will go down in #bikeschool history for sure.

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.
