THANK YOU: We’re Sending Keith to Trinidad



On behalf of Keith, our Mocha Spoke tour taxi man, I’d like to sincerely thank all of you who helped raise the funds necessary to send him to Trinidad for cancer treatment.  We more than exceeded our goal.

One thing Keith never told me is that he needed to confirm that he had the money by 4:00PM today.  But thanks to your generosity, we reached the total by last night.  Thank You.  Thank You.  Thank You.

We’d like to recognize Jesse, Kui, Dylan, Danielle, Erin, Holly, Laura, Ellen, Mark, Mari, Bryan, Gemma, Lindsay, Christine, Richard, Spencer, James, Roger, and Mocha Spoke for their generosity.

Our Loving the Bike readers and Mocha Spoke customers are the best.  As you see in the pictures, I gave him a hug from all of you.

I’ll keep all of you updated on how things go for Keith.  Please think positive thoughts for him and his family.

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.
