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,...

A Surefire Way to Cure Vehicle vs Cyclist issues

Okay, so I’ve come up with the ultimate guaranteed way to cure the issues found on the road between cyclists and motorists.  Well, actually I’m kind of stealing the idea from my good friend Daniela who mentioned it recently in a comment. She posted this on Facebook in response to my recent “Plea to...

The Roads Might Be Safer Than We Think

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.
