Bonaire Bike Holiday

2011

Would you like to go cycling on and off road in Bonaire this winter?  Your Caribbean Cycling escape has arrived.  The price is incredible, the location is about as bikey exotic as you can get, and where else would you rather be this February than Bonaire?

Bonaire is basically one incredible tropical oasis found in the southern Caribbean just off the coast of Venezuela.  It may be known as one of the best diving locations in the world, but seeing as this island is owned by the Netherlands….you just have to know that it’s got some incredible bicycle culture as well.  For more information on Bonaire, including climate, currency (just happens to be US Dollar), and everything else you’d like to know…please visit: www.bonaire.org.

Airfare Not Included: The airfare to Bonaire might be a little higher than other tropical locations, but oh so worthwhile.  But you won’t find a bicycle holiday like this one at a better price than what we have to offer.  For flight details from North America, contact Delta, Continental, and Insel Air.  For flight details from Europe contact KLMDelta, and Continental.

Amazing Caribbean location, all the cycling goodness you can handle, and a week of non-stop fun times.

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.
