Winter Riding Wednesday 3 – Comfort


Good winter biking gear is expensive; but, if you’re willing to spend some money, you’re going to be more comfortable and less likely to give up on winter cycling.

Once again, Kip goes into detail on what type of gear a winter cyclist should use to be comfortable during winter rides:

  • a helmet
  • goggles
  • head gear
  • jackets
  • gloves
  • pants
  • underwear
  • foot protection

Be comfortable, be safe and you’ll be a successful winter cyclist.

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.
