It might seem like a minor topic, but this month were discussing cycling socks and want you to help build up this post by letting us know your thoughts, comments, and opinions on high cut and low cut socks.

Have a look at this quick little video going over this month’s “Let’s Talk” topic, or just skip on down to the comments section and tell us what’s on your mind.  Which ones make a better fashion statement? Which ones do you prefer and why?  Are there unknown benefits to high cut socks?  Maybe you don’t even wear socks at all while cycling.  Give us all you’ve got….this post will be built up by you.

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.
