Last Minute Caribbean Cycling Getaway: Christmas 2012


If you don’t yet have plans for Christmas, and would like to spend the week of December 23 to 30th on the beautiful Caribbean island of Grenada….we’ve got a fantastic bike adventure for you.

As you know, I’m now living on the island of Grenada and running a bicycle cafe, tour, and rental business.  Along with this, we also put on kick butt triathlon camps from time to time.  Our big one is taking place at the end of March, and I’ll have more details on that very soon, but today I wanted to tell you about a little cycling holiday opportunity that just came up.

We’ve got one person coming in for the week of December 23rd to do some mountain bike and open water swim training with us.  He’s getting ready for the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon and needs to put in some quality time on the bike and in the water.

We’ve set him up with a great package consisting of accommodations, bike rental, airport transfers, coaching (bike and swim), and a bunch of other good stuff.  It’s totally a last-minute thing, but we’d love to have you come join us as well.

Check American Airlines or Caribbean Airlines to get a flight, but the rest of it is all looked after by us……and you just have to know that you’ll be looked after beautifully.

Does spending the holidays on this amazing Caribbean island, riding bikes  and chilling out sound good to you?  Let’s do it.

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.
