Rejjee Helps Eliminate Bike Theft

Bike theft sucks, and I think all cyclists should work together in eliminating this from happening to our fellow riders.  The guys from rejjee.com are here to tell you about what they are doing to help eliminate the problem.

This is not a paid post, we are putting it up as a community service informative piece.

The Good Samaritan Cyclist

It’s no longer uncommon that we get to share stories like this.

We were working at a community event in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA about two weeks ago.  We had maybe five hundred people stop by our tent to register their bikes with our free mobile app.  This was part of our nation-wide campaign called Rejjee your Ride (www.rejjee.com/rejjeeyourride) to register one million bikes and reduce bike theft.

As we were talking to six to eight people in the tent at the time a guy walked past behind the group of about eight people engaging us in conversation.  ‘Hey Rejjee’, he said.  ‘Love your service.  I found a bike and was going to sell it on Craigslist for $1,000, but then someone told me about you.  So I did a search, found the guy who reported it lost, and dropped it off with police so they guy could get it back.’  ‘What? Where was this?  What town?  What’s your name?’  I replied.  The heads of everyone in the tent spun around to see who was sharing this amazing story.

Just as soon as he appeared he was gone around the corner.  I eagerly wanted to follow him, but I also didn’t want to disengage with the folks right in front of me.

Like all Good Samaritans this kind soul left no name, but rather an unforgettable impression.  Through the diligent work of the Boston Police, MBTA Police, and local campus police departments Rejjee has helped to recover stolen bikes at seven times the national average – mainly because people had their bikes registered and could make a legitimate claim.  We tell the press and law enforcement agencies we work with that we are just a tool, they are the ones doing the hard work.  And when users tell us these kinds of stories we realize that what we have launched is more than just a tool for law enforcement but an empowering platform for the cycling community to reduce bike theft.

Ride safe.  Use a U-Lock.  And don’t forget to Rejjee your Ride.

Enjoy Your Ride

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.
