Update on Cycling Landscape Photo Contest


Photo: Alex Molick

The incredible cycling landscape photos continue to come in, and you’ve got until Midnight Thursday to submit yours.  This really is the biggest contest we’ve put on so far and can’t wait to award the Grand prize and runner up awards.  For full details of this fantastic contest, check out our Cycling Landscape Photo Contest post.

I didn’t want to post any of the photos that have come in so far because I thought it best to wait and just post the top 5 once they are selected by our panel of judges…..but there is a sneak peek in our Cycling Landscape Photo folder on Facebook.  I also wanted to share with you a behind the scenes look at how that Monument Valley RAAM photo that I posted last week came together.  It’s definitely one of my favorite cycling photos ever and it’s also what inspired this photo contest.  Scroll down to the bottom of this post for details on how to submit your photo.

Here’s a shot Dan Joder photographing that beautiful image of Dex Tooke coming up the road at Monument Valley….and a reminder of just how beautiful the resulting photo turned out (below).

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.
