“Why VW” Matters Campaign Features Cycling


Volkswagen of America has launched a new Why VW campaign and social media platform that captures and shares the stories of Volkswagen owners and fans in a whole new way.

Why VW showcases simple, human moments of people of all walks of life sharing their values.  The content is divided in two sections: Values and Stories. The Values section contains information about Volkswagen products along with five short films featuring real Volkswagen owners and their unique stories.

Volkswagen created two-minute films to educate visitors about the company’s core values, including quality, safety, value, environment and performance. The Why VW campaign provides a new creative outlet for our owners and fans to share their individual Volkswagen stories with the world in a more meaningful way.

One of the stories that’s very compelling is that of Training with Andy (first story at the top under “performance”).  Andy is a triathlete and VW GTI owner, who helps train and guide physically challenged athletes. The way he helps a blind woman compete in a Triathlon is quite amazing, and something people may not realize as possible.  It’s a truly inspiring narrative of an athlete who gives back to others in a quite noble way.

Watch all of the VW stories on http://why.vw.com/values and tell us which one are you most drawn to? Yeah, I’m sure it will be the one with Andy.

Enjoy Your Ride

    Thanks for pointing this out! Instead of going out and buying a VW, this
    video makes me want to give a year-end donation to a close friend of
    mine’s ministry called The Bartimaeus Project. They help place visually impaired orphans from the Philippines to the United States. Thanks for pointing me out to this video!

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.
