2011

The contest is now closed.  Thanks for all your great merchandise suggestions and for entering yourself in our Loving the Bike Jersey giveaway. Congratulations to @ozarksbiketrail who was randomly selected through random.org.

For those who didn’t win and would like any of our Loving the Bike or #bikeschool merchandise, it is on right now at 30% off until December 1, 2011.  Head over to http://gear.grouchosports.com/category/groucho-collaborative and get yours now.  Use Discount Code: LTBBKSCHOOL to get your 30% off.

 

We’re back with another jersey give-away this week….but this time it’s extra special because it’s one of our own.  That’s right this is your chance to win one of our Loving the Bike Jerseys.

It would be kind of strange to review our own clothing, but one thing that I’ll say is those guys over at Groucho Sports sure know how to put together some mighty fine product.  We buddied up with Groucho last May and introduced the Loving the Bike line of Jerseys, Kits, and T-shirts so that everyone out there could become part of the “Loving the Bike Army”.  But the one thing we haven’t yet done is give one of these beautiful jerseys away….So today is the day.

Enter to Win:

It’s really easy to enter this one.  Simply leave a comment below letting us know what other merchandise you’d like to see from Loving the Bike.  Yep, that’s it. The contest closes on Thursday at Noon EST so get in to win right now.  The winning comment will be selected using random.org and we’ll announce who won on Thursday afternoon.

In addition to the jerseys, we also have Shorts, Kits, and T-Shirts.  For more about our Loving the Bike Collection from Groucho Sports, please visit http://gear.grouchosports.com/category/collaborations.

 

Enjoy Your Ride

    Simple question, simple answer – Socks! No ensemble is complete unless you can match head to toe :)

  2. Michael McKinney on November 17, 2011 at 9:35 am

    a patch kit?

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 17, 2011 at 10:09 am

      We actually have Loving the Bike patch kits, but they are to give away and not sell.  I’ll have to go check and see if we still have some.

  3. Kevin W. on November 17, 2011 at 9:12 am

    Arm warmers

  4. Karien Vd Merwe Potgieter on November 17, 2011 at 8:01 am

    Arm warmers, socks or tech tees would be nice :) .

  5. Matt Florio on November 16, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    Well since you are Canadian how bout a nice LTB wool hat for those colder days ahead?

  6. Anonymous on November 16, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    I kinda liked the old baby onesie ;-P … Really tho, socks, and some of those sweet new groucho armwarmers would work well too….. Maybe a cycling cap, I really need a cycling cap…. 

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 16, 2011 at 7:59 pm

      I’m bummed about the onesie’s.  My previous supplier was the one who did those and I asked if he could continue doing them for us and he said his supplier didn’t have them any longer.  I am going to have to look into other options, because those were super cute.

  7. Ryan Orlick on November 16, 2011 at 7:11 pm

    Those other merchandise are awesome, but what about plus size?

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 16, 2011 at 8:00 pm

      They do come in XXL….what size were you looking for?  I can check and see if we can get it for you.

  8. Pauline Mayo on November 16, 2011 at 6:51 pm

    Love the design of the shirt, how about writing on the back that says “If you can read this, You are too close now give me SPACE!”

  9. Purnomo on November 16, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    helmet please…

  10. Talitha Burnett on November 16, 2011 at 4:36 pm

    Socks!!

  11. Talitha Burnett on November 16, 2011 at 4:36 pm

    Socks!!

  12. andi on November 16, 2011 at 4:36 pm

    I would like to see some bike lights.

  13. jake on November 16, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    a casquette (traditional peaked cotton cap worn by racing cyclists)

  14. Cody Johnson on November 16, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    How bout some awesome cycling caps?

  15. Bob Simonette on November 16, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    How about some Loving the Bike stickers to go on your bike or vehicle?

  16. Tristinmorgan on November 16, 2011 at 9:57 am

    I would love a water bottle and t shirts with unique graphics on them!

  17. Clive Chapman on November 16, 2011 at 9:55 am

    What other stuff? Behave yourself Darryl, where’s your renowned imagination and thinking big?

    Become the North American Wiggle (Google it) and have every bit of Bike related goodness with the LTB logo all over it!!!! :-)

    Just sayin’… :-)

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 16, 2011 at 10:12 am

      I just checked out Wiggle.  Thanks for your comments, Clive and for reminding me to think big.

  18. Mark Sinclair on November 16, 2011 at 9:52 am

    how about a arm band.

  19. Jason Morton on November 16, 2011 at 9:47 am

    I would love to see a cycling hat or a beanie to wear under my helmet during the colder fall/winter months.

  20. A Q on November 16, 2011 at 9:22 am

    Arm sleeves would be awesome!

  21. A Q on November 16, 2011 at 9:22 am

    Arm sleeves

  22. Brandon Eason on November 16, 2011 at 9:21 am

    Some technical tees would not go amiss.

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 16, 2011 at 10:13 am

      Thanks Brandon.  We have been wanting to include tech t’s and Groucho is currently looking for the ideal supplier.  Hope to have them soon.

  23. Eric on November 16, 2011 at 9:14 am

    I would like to see Waterbottles, (easy low cost purchase and great advertising), but go with the upper end on quality. AND a long sleeve shirt out of nice material.

    LTB ARMY RULES!

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 16, 2011 at 10:14 am

      Good advice on going with good quality bottles.  I, personally, don’t like using any of the lower quality bottles.  Let’s keep on growing this Loving the Bike Army.

  24. Paul Furness on November 16, 2011 at 9:08 am

    Selection of Loving the Bike themed casual tops – hoodies, t shirts etc that are cycling themed design (thinking MistressH or Artxrank style bike art)

  25. Wynnabah on November 16, 2011 at 9:03 am

    A Livestrong band

  26. Nathan Saxton on November 16, 2011 at 9:01 am

    Someone below said hoodie – consider this another vote in that direction.

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 16, 2011 at 10:14 am

      Thanks for adding another vote to that suggestion, Nathan.  Good luck in the contest.

  27. Bob A on November 16, 2011 at 8:57 am

    I would love to see, with winter approaching up north here, LTB tights, socks and thermal jerseys.  And Merino wool. 

    As for casual wear, I like the idea of a long sleeve t, but would make it look like a black short sleeve t w/ a white long sleeve underneath.

    The ideas for stickers or window transfers/decals is great too.

  28. BikeView.CA on November 16, 2011 at 8:47 am

    How about some Merino Wool socks!

  29. Ken Walker on November 16, 2011 at 8:46 am

    Merino socks!

  30. Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 16, 2011 at 8:38 am

    There have been some incredible suggestions so far.  We’ll be working with Groucho to see what items we can add to our product line.  We’re still taking entries today and will announce the winner tomorrow.  Watch for it.

  31. Katie Wolters on November 16, 2011 at 8:09 am

    bumper stickers- so we can rep our bikes even while stuck in traffic 

  32. Keith Reynolds on November 16, 2011 at 7:45 am

    Socks. Definitely socks. The people who pay attention to details and enjoy life’s finer things know that no kit is truly Belgian-level cool unless it has appropriate socks!

  33. MarkBeaky on November 16, 2011 at 7:34 am

    I would love to see some hats as well as t shirts. Its a great way to promote LTB when you are not riding.

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 16, 2011 at 8:36 am

      Thanks for entering, Mark.  We do already have the T-shirts and you can find them at http://gear.grouchosports.com/product/loving-the-bike-street-t.  Hats are definitely another great item we need to include.

  34. Nathaniel on November 16, 2011 at 6:51 am

    some socks and hats would be cool.

  35. Caratunkgirl on November 16, 2011 at 6:39 am

    Oh man, I would love to get my hands on that jersey! 

    I think arm warmers would be really cool.And if you DO go with a thong, I suggest you add the bikini…. You know, those are so comfy to ride with  :)

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 16, 2011 at 8:37 am

      Yeah, arm warmers would make a great addition to our line of merchandise.  Hahahaha, Yes the bikini top would go nicely with the thong.

  36. Justin "Bike Geek" Moore on November 16, 2011 at 6:12 am

    Socks and a skull cap (for those of us follicle-challenged aka bald) would be nice!

  37. Tim Wonders on November 16, 2011 at 2:28 am

    Caps, socks.

  38. @digitalmom22 on November 15, 2011 at 11:31 pm

    Visors!

  39. Debra Gagner on November 15, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    merino wool

  40. Surlymanofsteel on November 15, 2011 at 10:12 pm

    How about knickers for the commuters among us?

  41. Jon Binsted on November 15, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    How about threadless stem caps?

  42. Lloyd Lemons on November 15, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    I like to have some boxer shorts for sleeping! Ya know jammy bottoms. 

  43. Lwb443 on November 15, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    Socks or water bottles

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 15, 2011 at 8:23 pm

      Seems like Socks and Water Bottles are the most popular choice…..thanks for adding to the comments and good luck in the jersey giveaway.

  44. 95bimmer on November 15, 2011 at 6:47 pm

    How about books that are about bicycle touring.

  45. ozarksbiketrails.com on November 15, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    I gotta say socks would be awesome

  46. Malachi on November 15, 2011 at 6:09 pm

    Arm warmers. Tnx for the oppertunity and the contest.

  47. Scott Durham on November 15, 2011 at 5:59 pm

    Arm and leg warmers, bike saddle bag, and maybe some socks!

  48. Acktress1 on November 15, 2011 at 5:37 pm

    Arm Warmers Rock esp the colorful ones that add a punch to any solid color jersey.

  49. Jim Elmore on November 15, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    Long sleeve jerseys! Its getting cold around here

  50. Ben on November 15, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    Have you considered arm warmers? theyre universally useful no matter where a person lives, theres always a few rides a year at minimum where arm warmers would come in really handy.

  51. Julie Starling on November 15, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    I’d like to see colors other than black.  I’m trying to be seen out there. 

  52. Icemanbb on November 15, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    Bikeschool jersey in XL.

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 15, 2011 at 8:22 pm

      You’re in luck, the #bikeschool jersey is already available in XL….check it out right here: http://gear.grouchosports.com/product/bikeschool

  53. Eli Castro on November 15, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    I would totally sport the socks. And not to get too charity-ride on you, but a little Loving the Bike Bento Box type thing might be nice.

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 15, 2011 at 8:21 pm

      Thanks Eli, I appreciate your suggestions.  Socks definitely seem to be a popular choice so I’m sure they’ll be coming out soon.

  54. Christina Jones on November 15, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    What kind of products wouldn’t I like to see? Is the real question. Water bottles. Stickers. Tees in various colors. You name it!

  55. Mike Zubia on November 15, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    a cycling cap would be awesome, for sure.

  56. Gustavollamas on November 15, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    A decal for my car

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 15, 2011 at 4:56 pm

      Nice.  I have my vehicle decked out with Loving the Bike decals and it would be awesome to have others promoting us as well.  Good luck in the contest.

  57. Ian Redmond on November 15, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    I think another great idea would be like.. a wrist band like livestrong but get lovingthebike written on it 😀

  58. Ian Redmond on November 15, 2011 at 3:33 pm

    i would like to see a body warmer under the jersey so you can keep yer self warm on winter rides :)….or a SCARF!!!!

  59. Heather H on November 15, 2011 at 3:29 pm

    I’d like to see ladies sized t-shirts. Love that the jerseys come in ladies sizes!

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 15, 2011 at 8:20 pm

      It’s funny, we used to have women’s cut t-shirts and now we don’t.  I’ll see what I can do about getting them back into our merchandise collection again.

  60. Zach Jacob on November 15, 2011 at 2:56 pm

    How about a hoodie or other outerwear? Maybe a cycling vest?

  61. Adam Burgess on November 15, 2011 at 2:50 pm

    One of those cycling caps.

  62. Gordyfar1 on November 15, 2011 at 2:34 pm

    Various casual wear, caps, scars socks etc and overshoes,gloves and buff type products.

  63. Jen & Jess on November 15, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    A towel would be great, my hubby hates it when I sweat on the floor while riding my trainer 😉

  64. Terese on November 15, 2011 at 2:22 pm

    girlie girls love their bikes too…
     i think you should add more pink & feminine styles!

  65. Robert on November 15, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    Water Bottles are always needed, and now that Winter is here.. Workout towels for the rollers

  66. Ron Ng on November 15, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    Bumper sticker, helmet cover …. 

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 15, 2011 at 3:27 pm

      Hey Ron, great to have you as a new reader….and thanks to G+ for making that happen.  Good luck in the contest.

  67. Roberto on November 15, 2011 at 1:47 pm

    Socks

  68. Giarcatwood on November 15, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    I’d like to see baseball style hats and beanies

  69. Steve Jay on November 15, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    Wouldn’t mind a variation on the design in red for where the black is and yellow for the white :-)

  70. Julesmpg on November 15, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    A water bottle and t-shirt

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 15, 2011 at 1:39 pm

      Thanks for your suggestions.  We do already have a Loving the Bike T-shirt.  Check it out at http://gear.grouchosports.com/product/loving-the-bike-street-t.

  71. Amysaysso on November 15, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    Socks would be good :-(

  72. Christopher Hess on November 15, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    I would like to see water bottles as well….but cool ones, that are insulated and change color with an added pack of selectable stickers and poignant sayings that inspire and encourage,

    Or maybe just a plain bottle…

  73. Roy Smalley on November 15, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    Socks!

  74. Richard Moss on November 15, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    What about Hi-Vis waterproofs? I’m loving my bike, whatever the weather!!

  75. Terry on November 15, 2011 at 1:01 pm

    How about some stickers to spread the word?

  76. PedalmanTO on November 15, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    Woohoo! I’d love to see Jackets, socks, hats, ties, towels, tea cozy, curtains and a bedspread. The LTB army unite!

  77. Martha A. Boyd on November 15, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    I will turn into a Groucho if I don’t win that jersey.  I would love to have Loving the Bike jersey in my collection. :)

  78. Robert Prol on November 15, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    It would seem that lovin my bike means taking good care of it. So cleaning brushes and other stuff like that. 

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 15, 2011 at 3:24 pm

      Ahhhh, good idea.  If you’re going to be Loving the Bike, you need to be taking good care of it right?  I like it.

  79. jeremyiridebikes on November 15, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    Arm and leg warmers FTW.

    Nice jersey by the way.

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 15, 2011 at 3:23 pm

      Thanks Jeremy.  Great suggestions and I hope we can add them to our line of merchandise. 

  80. Mr McWhirter on November 15, 2011 at 12:29 pm

    I have a need for a towel for when I’m on the trainer,

  81. Antoine RJ Wright on November 15, 2011 at 12:27 pm

    Yea, that’s a nice jersey. I’d love to win it.

    As for a product for Loving the Bike to sell, I’d like to see something like a (slightly more protected) Fahrer iPad Bicycle Case (http://www.dmarge.com/2011/08/fahrer-ipad-bicycle-case.html). I like carrying my iPad to venues, but having to put it in a bag isn’t so cycle chic ya know. So yea, something like this case, with the Loving the Bike logo on the stem-holder piece, and maybe a bit more impact protection (since we all take a fall from time to time). Ideal commuter product then.

  82. Papamev on November 15, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    I would love to see water bottles so I can add to my collection.

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 15, 2011 at 3:22 pm

      Water bottles are pretty easy to add to our line of merchandise, I think.  I’ll check with Groucho and see if we can add these to the mix.

  83. KeiferB on November 15, 2011 at 12:20 pm

    Socks and arm Warner’s would be nice

  84. Littlepenguin2004 on November 15, 2011 at 12:20 pm

    more casual t-shirts with fun bike images, with some in womens more fitted styles

  85. Spip on November 15, 2011 at 12:19 pm

    Shorts of course, don’t fancy a wet butt.

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 15, 2011 at 12:24 pm

      We do have the shorts as well and you can see them over at http://gear.grouchosports.com/category/groucho-collaborative.

  86. Wuss912 on November 15, 2011 at 12:18 pm

    do you have them in xxl? if not thats what i’d like to see (sizes for normal people)

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 15, 2011 at 12:24 pm

      Yes they do come in XXL.  You can view them on the Groucho website at http://gear.grouchosports.com/category/groucho-collaborative.

  87. Jean-Charles Buckle-Hachey on November 15, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    “Loving the Bike” Panniers or Pannier covers?

  88. Steve Dinn on November 15, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    I would love to see anything merino wool, from jerseys, to socks, to shorts, to tights.

  89. Joe Galliani on November 15, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    I’d really like to see some “Bikes Belong!” and “Share the Damn Road!” jerseys we can wear when cycling on streets here that people think are owned and ruled only by motor vehicles.

  90. Bill Cunningham on November 15, 2011 at 12:11 pm

    Socks are good.  Not sure about bike thongs … not my style … but, might enjoy seeing on the road, dependent on who’s wearing them!!

  91. Keith R Edmiston on November 15, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    Socks

  92. Susan on November 15, 2011 at 12:02 pm

    How about selling books about becoming a better cyclist?

  93. Steve Montalto on November 15, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    My ride wants some “Loving the Bike” Lovin’.  Maybe a saddle bag, some stickers…

  94. Aaronthestrong on November 15, 2011 at 12:00 pm

    Loving the bike THONGS. Totally would sport a whale tail with some loving the bike action…Seriously though, I think hats would be rad…black, with no text, just the LTB logo in white. Or maybe even the Logo from the right side of this page advertising Groucho. 

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 15, 2011 at 3:21 pm

      Nice one, Aaron.  I know you’ve been wanting a Loving the Bike kit for a while now so good luck to you in this contest.  I’ll let you know when the thongs are ready for order…hahahaha.

  95. Eric on November 15, 2011 at 11:55 am

    I have wanted one of these for a long time.  I sure do hope I win it.  I would also like to see a loving the bike long sleeve shirt.

    • Darryl is Loving the Bike on November 15, 2011 at 4:55 pm

      I actually have the one and only long sleeve at the moment.  It was a prototype and I love it….hope we can add it to our merchandise list for you.

  96. Jim Rusnell on November 15, 2011 at 11:53 am

    I’d like to see some socks. 

  97. Jessy Diamond on November 15, 2011 at 11:50 am

    What about a water bottle?

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.
