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.

Safe Cycling Roads

She posted this on Facebook in response to my recent “Plea to Motorists” video, and I really think she’s onto something.  Daniela may be more of a sailor than a biker, but her solution is genius.

So here’s the deal.  We make every person who operates a vehicle get on a bike and spend 10 minutes riding on their local roadways (I think it would be even more effective if we made them ride on the most dangerous cycling road in their area).

Cyclists and Motorists

So after they pee their pants or go running home to Mommy….or both, I’m pretty sure they’ll have a newfound appreciation for cyclists on the road.

Now if there were just a way to get this implemented in our towns and cities.  Do any of you have good connections with the President or Prime Minister of your country?

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.
