Bringing Back the Riding with Music Debate

I’m honestly not much of a debater.  Further, I don’t generally jump into a heated discussion and try to voice my opinion.  But every so often, I step knowingly into the fire……just like I am once again. I’ve been cycling with music in my ears for like 10 years now.  I respect the argument...

MyID for on and off the Bike

I’ve always liked the idea of having some sort of personal ID on me when out for a ride.  You know…..just in case. It’s something we don’t want to think about, but being pro-active is always a good thing.  Way back, I used to ride with a little note written on paper that had...

Food on the Go….on and off the Bike

For as long as I can remember, my typical lunch has been a protein bar or shake.  Yeah, some people say that is not real food and shouldn’t be ingested as a daily meal, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. The benefits to me are that it’s quick, nutritious, and I don’t...

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.
