Circling Grenada by Bike

Circling Grenada by Bike

Generally speaking, Caribbean countries are quite small when compared to the rest of the world.  This may be true, but it also depends on how you look at it.  Sure, the main island road that takes you around the perimeter of Grenada is less than 100 kms in distance, but this is very deceiving.  Especially when...

Eaten Up By Grenada

I’ve been riding a road bike for about ten years now, but it wasn’t until moving to Grenada that I’ve totally felt eaten up by the road and related conditions. Yeah, I’ve cycled in many different parts of the world and experienced a few issues along the way.  But here in Grenada, my bike,...

Mountain Bike Pioneer

I may not be an extreme mountain biker like some of you out there, but lately I’ve been feeling like a mountain bike pioneer….and making it happen on the Grenada off-road trails. On my tropical island of Grenada, there are not too many mountain bikers around…heck, there’s not that many cyclists in general.  There...

That Ain’t Suffering

The word “Suffering” seems to be in the vocabulary of most cyclists, and generally seems to fit our sport quite well.  Heck, the guys over at The Sufferfest have even created the Tour of Sufferlandria for cyclists to join in the suffering from their pain cave. I’ve totally bought into the term and find...

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.
