I’m Still Proudly Repping Texas

2013

My Family and I lived a total of 3 years in the beautiful city of Austin, Texas.  That equates to only about 7% of my life….but it was enough for me to consider it home.  Even though we’re Canadians, my entire Family actually considers it home.

I miss the city, the bike culture, and the people….and we plan to get back there for a visit as often as we can. But for now, I am able to proudly represent Texas cycling with this great new T-shirt that was recently sent to me.

Wheel Sucker Cycling Texas

It all started when Dan Reed saw us on House Hunters International.  I’ve actually had an insane amount of people contacting me now that the show has aired a few times in the States.  The episode never once includes our business name, Mocha Spoke (or Loving the Bike) but enough people have Googled “Bicycle Cafe Grenada” which easily allows them to search us out.

Okay, so after seeing the show, Dan contacted me and offered to send a few of the T-shirts from his Wheel Sucker Cycling business.  I have a ton of cycling t-shirts, but it sure is nice to now have one that shows my love for Texas cycling.  What’s even cooler is that my two boys get to be like Daddy.

    Never thought I would love Texas like I do. Before I got here, I must admit I looked a bit down my nose about it. I cannot think of a place I would rather live now. Texas Rocks.

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.
