Must Have Cycling EquipmentWhen it comes to cycling equipment, what do you feel is the bare minimum that every cyclist must have?  With all that is available out there, it’s so easy to get caught up and over-stock yourself with things you don’t end up using…..or not benefiting from.  So where do you draw the line?

It’s been a while since we’ve put up one of our “Let’s Talk” posts, but I always like reading about what our followers have to say.  Like all of our posts in this feature, the Let’s Talk ones are built by you.  So here’s what we want to know:

Tell us what accessories, clothing, and home equipment every cyclist must have.  Let’s Talk.

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.
