Detours Coffee Bag and D2R Rear Bicycle Bag


Detours is all about making fun, high-quality bags for bicycle commuters, recreational cyclists, and long-distance tourists.  Basically they want to provide a product for anyone who rides a bike.  This Seattle-based company believes in cycling to work all year round and having a good time.  Definitely sounds like my kind of company.

I highlighted Detours in, “The Man-Bicycle Basket” and am now featuring them today as we continue with our Loving the Bike review week.

Last time around as I was checking out all that this company had to offer, I came across what they call the coffee bag (Retails for $24).  Seeing as I’m the owner of a bicycle café, I figured this should be something we have here.  But there was another products I found very interesting, so I asked if they could also send me their D2R Rear Bag (retails for $85) as well.

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.


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.
