Check out some photos I took from last weekend’s Mountain Bike Race at Flat Rock Ranch...

The Rapha Effect

I’m not sure exactly what it is, but Rapha somehow manages to throw a lot of cyclists into a trance. Last weekend at NAHBS was no different.  They thundered into Austin on Thursday night and mesmerized everyone with their dazzling Rapha Continental Movie Premier at Mellow Johnny’s.  Before anyone could snap out of their daze,...

Watson Cycles: NAHBS 2011

It’s hard to single out just one of the builders with all the incredible bikes and displays at the NAHBS…but for some reason Watson Cycles caught my eye. They had a super fat tire bike on display that was very sweet, along with a bunch of other custom frames.  The company does an incredible...

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.
