“I’m an engineer by training and nature.  I read an articlecomparing the efficiency of locomotion of various species. The condor was the most efficient getting from point A topoint B.  The human was somewhere in lower half, maybe about athird of the way up the list.  However, if you give the humana bicycle, he is the most efficient of all species.  If mymemory is correct, we still haven’t ever developed any device thatis more efficient.  That is why I love the bicycle.  Iride everywhere, all year long.”

“I first fell in love with cycling when I was a child.  I am not sure of my age, but I know I was very young.  My parents tell me that I always wanted to be out riding my bike when I was a child, and that is still the case today.  It is often difficult to express this into words, but on my bike is one of the few places where I feel at peace with myself and at peace with life.  It is my escape.  It is my way of coping with the things around me.  I love cycling.”

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.
