Families are Making it Happen…Every Day

Each and every day….all around the world…..Families are in motion.  It honestly amazes me how on a daily basis a Family can get themselves ready, get the kids off to school, and the Parents to work…..all the while never missing a beat. Add in some personal time for cycling, or other activity and all...

Electronic Free Day…on and off the Bike

Quite a while ago our Family decided to make Sundays an electronic free day, meaning we wouldn’t use the TV, Computer, Phone, or any other similar device.  We’re not generally electronic obsessed, but for this one day a week we make sure to keep them off and totally focus on quality Family time. It’s...

Family and Bikes…The Rest is Just Stuff

Yeah, it’s true.  There really are only two things that matter to me…..my Family, and Cycling.  Seriously, if I could fill my days with nothing other than these two things I would consider myself an utter success.  My Family and the Bike matter so much to me, that I’ve spent the past few years...

We’re spending today at the Magic Kingdom in celebration of my Son Indie’s 5th Birthday.  Yeah, how cool is that?  There can’t be any better place to celebrate your birthday than Disney World when you’re a kid.  We’ll also be taking our Daughter there next week when we celebrate her 12th birthday.  Their birthday’s...

A Hero, Fallen

Let me tell you right now that today’s post has absolutely nothing to do with cycling.  I’ve had a few close calls in the past, but for the first time…after doing cycling blogs for the past six months, I’m deviating from what this blog is all about. The reason?  Because I am way overdue...

The Fifth Sip

I remember the day very well.  It was just over a year ago, June 23rd 2009.  I was in our bedroom and my wife was lying down on the bed….out of nowhere she says, “Darryl, I’m pregnant”.  My heart immediately sunk…..Child Number 3 was on the way.  We hadn’t planned this, so I was...

My First

My First

I had always thought my first bike was a tiny little purple thing with training wheels because that is as far back as my memory takes me.  I’m not sure why, but I had never gotten around to asking my Parents if that really was my first bike or if there were bikes prior...

Priorities

Last week a good buddy of mine said to me…“If you’re as busy as you say you are, how can you get out there for all those two and three hour rides?”. “Priorities, my friend”, was my simple reply.  In essence there are only three main ingredients that fill my days….Family, Cycling, and Work....

The Cyclist’s Wife

So what makes a great cyclist?  Is it the training, equipment, passion, focus?  All of these things, and more.  But for me, there is one vital component that has made me the cyclist I am today….My Wife. Okay just to clarify here, I’m not currently in the doghouse or trying to suck up in...

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.
