Bike vs Flight

You might remember my friend Joe from a few cycling hashtag posts that he did for us a while back. Well, today he’s caught up in one super cool event and I just had to write about it. Due to a two day closure of the 405 Freeway in LA, JetBlue Airlines is offering people...

Hashtag Tuesday: #ShutUpLegs

It’s got to be one of the most popular (and repeated) cycling quotes of all time….and who doesn’t just love that Jens Voigt dude?  You can’t keep an awesome quote like this one away from Twitter, and #shutuplegs has definitely become a well used hashtag.  But do you know the history of “Shut up Legs”...

Hashtag Tuesday: #30daysofbiking

I’d have to say that the very first cycling hashtag to ever catch my attention was #30daysofbiking. It was a genius idea by @patiomensch and @zachamon, and officially launched on April 1, 2010 (and I’m still kicking myself for not thinking of something like this myself). On April 1 they’ll kick off round three of #30daysofbiking….are...

For all of you living in places where the cycling streets are covered in white stuff all winter, there’s light at the end of the tunnel.  Yes, my friends….Spring is on it’s way. I’m definitely a cold weather riding wimp and could never imagine riding through a cold and snowy winter, but I’ve met...

Hashtag Tuesday: #whyweride

It all started with a random thought (tweet) by @FunctionalCycle in December 2009: It was not a new idea to @FunctionalCycle, as he had always made a conscious effort to be positive in everything that was being promoted, but the above tweet was heard and then sparked the creation of #whyweride….a great Twitter hashtag...

Hashtag Tuesday: #cyclenerds

The name #cyclenerds conjures up a few different thoughts, but as it’s founder @sarahstanley explains, the tag is intended “to get kids excited about riding a bike.  Maybe girls want to trick their bike out with ribbons & baskets. Maybe its getting the whole family together and going for a ride on beach cruisers.”...

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.
