The Coolest Bike Fundraising Event Ever



Okay everyone, I sincerely need your help.  My friends over at Please Be Kind to Cyclists has asked me to create a yearly fundraising event for them and look after putting it together and organizing everything.

Like most things I do, I want this to be something that creates such a buzz that not only those from Austin will be taking about…..all cyclists will take notice.  But I need your help.

What are some of the best events you’ve ever taken part in that were in an effort to raise funds for a cycling organization? Better yet, what unique ideas do you have in your head that have not yet been put into reality?

There are several reasons I’m excited about this project.  First of all, being able to raise money for an organization that I respect and believe in is incredible.  Working on this with one of the most incredible people in the world, Al Bastidas, is another one.  Being able to travel back to Austin to host the event, is a definite plus as well.

Okay, so let’s hear your ideas.  I’m open to anything and looking forward to putting this whole thing together.  Oh, and if any of your ideas are selected and used for this event…’ll be compensated with a cool gift as well.

Please list your event ideas and suggestions below:

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.
