    Wow I am really taken aback about winning – there were so many amazing pictures! Thank you for voting. I can really recommend The Vercors area of France, it’s not as well known. On that day we had the road practically to ourselves and yet everywhere was jaw dropping views and beautiful riding including some really really fun downhills and delicious mountain berries on the roadside. Travelling on my bike for 6 months was one of the most amazing experiences of my life and I was extremely privileged to have had the opportunity. Looking through my photos it’s hard to believe how many amazing landscapes I rode through. If you’re thinking about riding in Europe or going on a bike tour anywhere  – DO IT!

    Congrats to all who entered–there were some great images in that collection!  Good lesson: always carry your camera with you on your bike.  There are some great point-and-shoot cameras out now, with super image quality, that you can just slip into your jersey pocket.

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.
