Cycling Blog Top Dogs 2011


It’s that time of year again when we provide the platform to select the top cycling blogs in the World. The reigning champions: Cycling Tips (Road Category), Fyxomatosis (Lifestyle), Brickhouse Racing (Mountain Bike), and Going Slowly (Travel/Commuter) will be out to retain their title of Top Dog in their respective categories.  This year we’ve split the Travel and Commuter categories into their own separate polls, and we’ve added a new Women’s category this year as well.

For all of you cycling bloggers, there is also a very exciting announcement from Livestrong that will be disclosed on the Crank Listed site later this week.  Watch for it and  find out the details on how you can get involved with the good people at Exciting stuff.

The polls are now open.  Head over to and help select this year’s Top Dogs.  You can vote once per day per category up until June 1, 2011.

Good Luck to all the Cycling Bloggers.


Enjoy Your Ride

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.
