Rob Greenfield Goodfluence

Rob Greenfield continues his ride across the United States, and is now spreading his goodness along the Northern part of the country.  After flying from Louisiana to Minnesota, he’s now continuing his cross country bike ride called the “Goodfluence Bicycle Tour“.

So what’s with the name?  Well, Rob’s not just a cyclist and all around great guy….he’s also the founder of what he’s called, Goodfluence.  He’s the basics of what Goodfluence is all about:

Goodfluence is the place for you to do good and influence your friends and social networks to do good too. By good we mean actions that are beneficial to the earth, your community, or yourself. Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” We say be the change and influence others to be the change too!

Along with all of this is a soon-to-be-released app that will help all of us do more good each day.  I think that is pretty awesome.

Rob’s had a pretty quiet week on the bike, but he had the major highlight of stopping in his hometown of Ashland, Wisconsin to celebrate his mom’s 60th birthday.  Now he’s off for NYC, pedaling through the beautiful Northland of the United States.

Bike2Power Powers Rob

SP-SD-8-dynamo-hub-red-750x750-750x750One of the products that Rob was wanting to use for his ride is a Dynamo Hub exclusively sold by Bike2Power.  Unfortunately his custom Bamboosero bike needed a hub that’s not overly common, so he hasn’t yet received it.  But the service over at Bike2Power is fantastic and they plan to get it to him as soon as possible.

The Shutter Precision (SP) Dynamo Hub is the lightest and most efficient dynohub on the market.  They produce 72% efficiency when the lights are on, which makes them 17% more efficient than any other.  The SP Dynohub is also the lightest on the market.  Each one weighs in at under 400 grams (14ounces), and are virtually drag-free.

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.
