2011

If you haven’t heard of Grease Monkey Wipes, I’d like to introduce you to this good old company located right here in Austin, Texas. Grease Monkey Wipes are “multi-purpose cleaning wipes that use an all natural citrus formula for heavy duty cleaning. Each wipe easily removes grease, grime, oil, paint, marker and other messes from skin and surfaces.”

These wipes were originally created for cyclists, by cyclists, but they can really be used for anyone who gets down and dirty.  If you don’t have soap and water handy, Grease Monkey Wipes are a perfect way to clean you up on the go.

The Grease Monkey Wipes Contest:

It’s time for you to show us your dirty little self.  To be in to win, all you have to do is send us a photo of your filthy bike, your dirty hands, or anything else that shows us you’re in need of some free product. Either include a link to the picture in the comments section below, or e-mail them to darryl@lovingthebike.com. Don’t own a camera?  Okay, we’ll let you comment on why you should receive some free product as well…but you’re going to have to make it good.

Submit the goods right now….contest closes on Monday at 3:00PM EST.

Grease Monkey Prize Pack:

Grease Monkey owners, Tim Stansbury and Erin Whalen will deem who they feel is the dirtiest rider out there and shoot them out a Grease Monkey Wipes canister and a 12 pack box of the wipes.

For anyone who doesn’t win, they’re offering up a great discount to all the Loving the Bike readers as well.  Go to www.greasemonkeywipes.com and enter “loving” when it asks for a promotion code (Apply Coupon) to save 25%.  This code will be active from April 1 to April 11.

Congratulations to Ben Berry.

His Dirty Little Photo was selected by Tim and Erin and they said it “Totally captures what we were going for in this contest”.  Thanks to all of you for submitting your photos.  Watch for our next Loving the Bike contest coming soon.

Enjoy Your Ride

    Yesterday I rode #One to the LBS to have her locking grips put on. In the rain. It wasn’t raining when I started.
    The whole backend of the bike was filthy when I got home, especially the rim on the back. I dried her off and wiped up as good as I could with a dry rag.

    I REALLY could have used some Monkey Wipes!!

    Since I didn’t catch a photo of my bike being dirty, here’s what I’ve got to offer.
    The photo shows a clean rag (before) and the rag I used to clean my bike (after).

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.
