Loving the Bike TVIt’s been way too long since I put out an episode of Loving the Bike TV.  Well, it’s finally here and this time around I’m focusing on using loving life on and off the bike…..but more so on the bike.

We all love our time on the bike, but getting into that zen-like state is something we all need in our lives.

Here’s more in the video:

    So true, so true. I’ve been traveling a lot for work and can’t seem to get back on the bike and I can definitely tell the difference in the way I feel about life and my attitude towards others. Back in the office next week so looking forward to some evening rides around town. Keep the rubber side down!

      It’s one the best types of therapy out there. Hope you’re back on the bike soon, my friend.

    Great to see you on video again, Darryl! Totally agree…took a 30 mile road ride today on some very quiet roads, no phone, nothing but me, the bike, and (unfortunately) the territorial Red-Winged Blackbirds occasionally forcing me to pick up the pace (and picking up the pace of my heart as well; getting chased by a bird can be a bit scary!) A long road ride is the perfect place to think, to meditate, to work issues out in your mind as your body goes into auto-pilot. 🙂

      Thanks, Emily. Nice job on the ride today……keep up the #lovingthebike attitude.

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.
